Michigan Woman Charged With Embezzling Money From Her Father
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has charged Renee Bullock, a resident of Redford, Michigan, will one count of embezzling money from her elderly father. In 2010, after Bullock's father was admitted to a nursing home, she was appointed as the guardian of her father and was given a power of attorney over his finances. From this time to the present, Attorney General Schuette alleged that Bullock embezzled more than $140,000 of her father's money for her own personal expenses. In course of this time, Bullock failed to pay the nursing home. Instead, she chose to lease "a Cadillac CTS and a Chevrolet Tahoe" with her father's funds. After further investigation, it was discovered that Bullock used her father's funds at "casinos, nail and tanning salons, numerous restaurant and retail establishments."
In response to this discovery, a court has removed Bullock from her role as the guardian of her father. Bullock met her $10,000 bond and is expected to be in court on December 6, 2012 for her preliminary exam.

Where is the presumption here? Does this look like the type of lady who would be involved in tanning and nail salons? Really.

It's amazing how much of this article is incorrect. My age for starters. Those cars were never leased in my name. Also my father had a financial advisor. I did not embezzlement money from my father.

Interesting where little lessons come from......here for example, a criminal defendant speaking about the case in public. This is something I would advise against in all instances. You can bet the folks at the AGs office monitor these types of statements during the course of trial preparation and such statements are fertile ground for impeachment upon cross examination
