Lawyer's, Assistant
We have a family trust. the owner of the trust passed away in July. He had a roommate living with in the house. For that last year of his life she was using funds in his account to get cash to go to casino and gamble. We got her to move out of the house so we can have handyman clean and paint and fix things that were neglected. She did over $13,000 from two credit cards and $1500. from atm transactions on the day he died not to mention the funds used in the year before he passed. We sold the house for much lower than we wanted because it needed work to be done. This persons name is***** is a beneficiary in the estate. We have filed a police report regarding the money she took and it has been submitted to the DA in October. They keep saying it is under review and have no idea when it will transfer to the Assigned DA. The funds for Claare are being held in the trust account until we hear from DA and hopefully they will move forward with prosecution. She does have a past history of credit card fraud against another person as well as forging checks on her own mothers account after she passed. . I guess what I want to know is can we hold the funds while we wait for the courts decide and how can we get before someone sooner. She is sending treating texts messages. ??
