Woman Posed As Sandy Hook Victim Gets Sentancing

sandy_hook_2013A New York City woman who posed as the aunt of a child killed in the massacre at a Sandy Hook Elementary School last December will be sentenced this afternoon.

Nouel Alba, 37, pleaded guilty in June to wire fraud and making false statements. She is scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday in federal court in Hartford.

Authorities said she posed as a victim’s family member in the aftermath of the shooting to solicit donations for a “funeral fund” on behalf of the family of 6-year-old Noah Pozner, who died at the school.

Alba allegedly claimed to be Pozner’s aunt.
