A psychic was convicted on Friday of enticing a woman to steal money and stealing $1 million from an elderly husband. Jaycee Wasso, 26, is to spend nine and a half years in prison and 15 years on probation. In addition, she can no longer do divination.

Hillsborough County, Florida prosecutors said she encouraged Lin Helena Halfon, 29, to marry Richard Rappaport, 80, to take his money.

“Lin give it your all,” Wasso wrote in August 2018. “Act like he’s your soul mate.”

Rappaport fell head over heels in love with Halfon, said prosecutor Paul Dontenville Jr., who described it as a “really good friendship” that led to Rappaport marrying Israel-born Halfon so she could stay in the United States. .

The prosecutor told jurors evidence would show Wasso continued to push when Halfon expressed doubts about Rappaport’s manipulation.

“It offends me that you want to go against all the work I’ve done,” the psychic reportedly wrote in July 2018. “I know what I’m doing, Lin.”
