Woman Accused In Disabled Elder Theft

A woman who worked for an elderly disabled woman is accused of helping herself to the woman's finances.

Emerald Isle police say Carolyn Greene worked for the woman for six months in late 2008 and early 2009, issuing checks for health care workers, paying bills and running errands.

But police say Greene overpaid herself, stole and forged checks. They say the total amount taken was over $4,000.

Greene has been charged with exploitation of a disabled elderly adult, nine counts of larceny, and nine counts of forgery. The woman was jailed on a $5,000 secured bond.

      I'd suggest you make this a civil court issue rather than a criminal case. If you wanted to pursue it in criminal court, you would need proof that your family member stole the money. What kind of tangible proof do you have? If you make this a civil matter, the burden of proof would land on the defendant. My guess is that you did not have any proof to make a criminal complaint. Good Luck.
