A couple who cheated a du Pont heir and “sugar daddy” out of $100,000 has pleaded guilty and will be paying their own prices.
After they connected, technologically speaking, Jessop got gifts and money, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The two never met online but did exchange photos, according to the Connecticut Post.
Then, last November, the Jessops turned the case into something else entirely when they
threatened to release information about Dent for patronizing prostitutes. He eventually paid them $100,000, police said.
The husband was sentenced to 18 months in prison and his wife was given three years probation.
Dent has been a victim of not one, but three types of these gold-digging scandals.
