My sister in law got medical and financial POA for my husbands parents when they were both physically disabled with dementia. Dad was in Hospice care, Mom had been in the hospital 3 times and was diagnosed with dementia. She did this secretly, telling them she needed them to sign so she could "pay the bills" After Dad died (Jan 2007)she took Mom to CT where she isolated her. Mom died in April 2009. Mom and Dad had a Trust and pour over wills stating that all of the property was to go to the trust and be divided equally between the two children. My sister in law had drained the bank accounts and CDs to the tune of over 1 million dollars. This was all proven in a civil trial. She has now filed bankruptcy to avoid the judgment. We can only pray that AZ will prosecute her criminally. She has hidden the money somewhere.
