Carer pleads guilty to theft of thousands of dollars from dying man

A ''cold and manipulative'' carer who stole from a vulnerable Stratford man has been ordered to pay reparation.

Terrence Alvyn Cooksley, 68, pleaded guilty to a charge of theft by a person in a special relationship and was ordered to pay $5000 reparation, a $2000 fine and $130 in court costs when he appeared in the Hawera District Court today.

McAnnalley's daughter Dianna Marsh and her husband Eric Marsh were present in court and Eric Marsh was given the opportunity to read out a victim impact statement on behalf of the family.
