BRANDON, Miss. –A woman who fled the state to avoid prosecution is back in Mississippi and will face charges of taking advantage of a vulnerable person, the office of Attorney General Jim Hood announced today.
Investigators say Janice Mohorn-Caines went missing last year after being indicted on charges of exploiting a vulnerable person at a Rankin County assisted living and dementia care community where she worked as a residential assistant. Court records show Mohorn-Caines stole thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from residents there, including a wedding band and an engagement ring. Mohorn-Caines was picked up in Texas Monday and retuned to Mississippi Tuesday.
“This case should serve as notice that we will do whatever it takes to bring perpetrators to justice, even if it means bringing them in from two states away,” said Hood in a news release.
Mohorn-Caines will be arraigned in Rankin County court his week.
