Go on your local Court's website, iif available, and see if they have an Eldaer Abuse court. Or check you local BAR association for free legal consultations in the area of Elder Abuse Many attorneys will give you a free half-hour consultation. If your sister is actually stealing, then she can be criminally and/or civilly charged.

My big question is what the money was used for. POA comes with responsibilities, so ask your sister for an accounting of the funds. It may be that the funds were used for care of your mother. If so, she should have records to account for the expenditures.
