Woman Arrested on Charges of Financial Elder Abuse

A woman suspected of stealing $2,800 from a group of nuns has been arrested on additional charges of financial elder abuse and grand theft. The police have reason to believe that there are additional victims of the financial abuse. She allegedly stole donations from a group of local nuns who were evicted from their convent to free up money for a sex abuse settlement involving the Archdioceses. She took the reins of a group called Save Our Sisters that was accepting checks on the nuns’ behalf and allegedly deposited 10 checks directed toward the sisters into her personal account. Financial exploitation has become an all too common form of elderly abuse. To read more about the financial exploitation, please click the link.
