Georgia man accused of stealing $200K from disabled mother
COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia man is accused of taking nearly $200,000 from his disabled mother’s account.
The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that 51-year-old Vincent Wiggins is charged with exploitation and intimidation of disabled adults or elder persons.
Columbus police say the money should have been used to pay for his 91-year-old mother’s care at an assisted living facility where her $30,000 bill hasn’t been paid.
Public defender Matthew Landreau says Wiggins continued his hearing on Thursday to allow for more time to hire a private attorney.
