In response to police, the Utica lady stole greater than $ 170,000 as an influence of legal professional for males

Utica, NY – A 60-year-old Utica woman was charged with stealing more than $ 170,000 from a man who made her his power of attorney, according to New York State Police.

Becky M. Kelsey has been charged with grandiose second degree theft after a year of investigation, police said.

A 72-year-old man had Kelsey made his proxy and she used her position to take the man’s money, police said. In October 2019, Oneida County Surrogate Court removed Kelsey as the man’s power of attorney after discovering inconsistencies in the man’s accounts when he was admitted to a long-term care facility, police said.

Kelsey was arrested at her home on October 13, indicted in the Oneida County Central Trial, and released at her own discretion.
