Broward Psychic Imprisoned, Must Pay Close to $402,700 to Victims. - OrlandoSentinel.com
A fortune teller who played on her main victim’s fear of witchcraft was ordered to pay more than $402,700 in restitution and sentenced to one year and three months in federal prison on Monday.
Olivia Evans, 22, was the last of three family members to be sentenced for her part in a fraud that tricked a dozen victims out of close to $2.2 million, according to court records.
Bridgette Evans, 33, of Hollywood, and her sister Pollie Evans, 37, of Broward County and Dallas, Texas, are already serving their prison terms. Between them, the three women were ordered to repay the money they admitted taking from victims.
Olivia Evans, formerly of Hollywood and Fort Worth, Texas, confessed that she instructed a woman, who prosecutors said was vulnerable, to send her a men’s “Rolex watch with a prism” saying it was “needed to be used as a vortex for demons to return to hell.”
Evans cried and looked mournfully at her father when she learned she was going to prison. She wailed as she was handcuffed and taken into custody in the courtroom.
