'Psychic' pleads guilty to theft charges 20 years later


The Cincinnati woman accused of stealing money from clients while working as a 'psychic' pleaded guilty to five charges Monday.

Sonia Marks, 50, will face up to eight years in prison for stealing about $250,000 from 11 victims over 20 years ago. The 'psychic' worked under the name Miss Ann during her time in Hamilton County.

Marks was originally indicted in 1994 but fled to Oklahoma before the indictment.

On Jan. 6, Marks' attorney, Cornelius Lewis, filed a motion a to dismiss the case on the grounds that the warrant was stale.

The 11 victims involved in the incident are alive, but should not expect any reimbursement.

“It's highly unlikely that any of those folks are going to receive that money back but at least they'll be able to sleep at night just knowing the person who took advantage of them is in custody,”  Oklahoma Sheriff's Office spokesperson, Mark Myers, told an Oklahoma TV station, KOKH.

Marks will be sentenced on Feb. 18.
