Man Pleads Guilty to Tricking 97-Year-Old Out of Over $16,000
by Chris Davis
McCOMB, Miss.--Over $16,000 was taken from a vulnerable adult and now 61-year-old Kenneth Miller of McComb will pay. It's five years in jail and fines of $2,000, plus a grand to pay for the investigation and a grand to the Mississippi Crime Victims Compensation fund. Miller also owes back the $16,000 he stole by writing checks from the woman's account.
The guilty plea was announced Tuesday by Attorney General Jim Hood, who says Miller tricked a 97-year-old bedridden woman into believing he was paying bills and doing landscaping work.
Hood says a bank employee realized what was going on and called cops.
