A man has been accused of appropriating more than $166,000 from his nonagenarian mother’s credit and bank accounts to purchase sexual items and online sex shows.
Shaun Joseph, 59, and his 91-year-old mother were residing together in a home in Dayton, Ohio. Joseph was caring for the daily needs of his mom, as she had become increasingly unable to do so for herself due to escalating dementia and failing eyesight.
At the start of December 2018, family members came to the Joseph household for a visit and felt that something might be amiss with the way the caregiving was being provided. They reportedly found the woman unkempt and unable to communicate, and they attributed her decline to a lack of proper care from Joseph.
