Recently, Mom had major surgery after which she went to a rehab facililty. During this time, my sister and I gained power of attorney to sort out her finances. We found out that a younger brother has been writing checks to himself from Mom's account as well as using her account to pay for other items the amount, so far, is around $10,000 (just in the last two years). Mom adamantly denies writing or authorizing these. She did not want to prosecute. We changed her account and then I filed a claim with the Vulnerable Adult Unit of our state attorney general's office. One sibling is very mad at me for potentially causing little bro to "go to jail". Was I wrong? Have any of you successfully prosecuted someone stealing your loved one's funds?
