Elderly Lives Don’t Matter: Judge's outrage at suspect Sharon McNeil who 'robbed a 103-year-old woman Louise Signore of her food and money in her Bronx apartment building'

There needs to be a special place in Hell for a woman who has done such a thing!

Daily Mail reports a judge expressed his shock upon learning a 103-year-old woman had been robbed in her Bronx apartment building. 

Sharon McNeil, 53, followed Louise Signore into the elevator and knocked her down before stealing her shopping cart and purse, authorities said.

She was arrested and charged with robbery, assault and harassment around 11am on Saturday, according to PIX 11.

Judge Ralph Fabrizio called out the 'callousness' of the robbery while McNeil pleaded not guilty on Sunday, the New York Daily News reported. 

'Oh, my goodness. Oh, my goodness,' Fabrizio said after learning Signore was 103 years old.

He said McNeil was accused of targeting 'a vulnerable individual' and hadn't shown up in court for 27 previous misdemeanor convictions.

'When people prey on 103-year-old victims — this case better be ready next month. We have to try this quickly,' Fabrizio said according to the New York Daily News.
'People prey on old, fragile individuals because they think they won't come forward.'
