Cynthia Hurley Gets A Year In Jail, Loses Properties

Before sentencing, Cynthia Hurley, clad in striped jail garb, was uncuffed so she could sign quit claim deeds for her 30-percent ownership of four Pacific Grove properties to pay a chunk of the $975,000 restitution.

Hurley was convicted of stealing the valuables from 98-year-old Lillian King, who had taken in Hurley and allowed her to live on her five-acre Sunset Drive property. At Hurley’s encouragement, King purchased properties on Divisadero and Granite streets and Piedmont and Forest avenues and signed over partial interest to Hurley.

Prosecutor Lisa Poll said Hurley’s actions were fueled by her addiction to methamphetamine and that she had filled King’s Sunset Avenue property with drug addicts.
