    Financial abuse of an elderly person with dementia = Elder Abuse.
    3 months is not enough time in jail.

      She was charged with failing to file income tax.

        They probably had to go for the tax evasion charge, because the elderly victim with dementia was not a “reliable witness” who could testify with certainty that the $ taken wasn’t authorized.

          Elderly abuse is about as low as it gets.  Why not send the abuser to Syria …………..

      I understand the demand for punishment, but restitution for the scamming should be a factor here. Unless she can work it off in jail, which would be perfect.

    I didn’t see where she has to pay the patient back, just taxes. Did I miss that part? Otherwise the AG just victimized the victim again and should be charged.

      she should pay back restitution on what he paid out for her. . that is theft of deception

She had charge of; and I will say it again here.The punishment for crimes against the elderly should be, the perp should be ordered by a judge to  shovel… Pig  Sh–… on a…… State of Maine Farm!! …These crimes are as Lo as it gets, right there inline with  child molesting, in my humble opinion!!!

    She was just taking early advantage of LePage’s determination to eliminate the state income tax. Perhaps the CATO institute will give her an award, too.
