Home Care Nurse takes Advantage of Elder

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

Michelle Stokes hired Lora Huffine to care for her ailing 93 year old mother. Michelle conducted an interview with Huffine, but decided against running a background check. "All I went on was that she had 24 years of care," Stokes said.

Huffine was found guilty of cashing a check that was sent to the Stokes' household for over $3,000. This wasn't her first offense. A background check would have told Stokes that Huffine pleaded guilty to four counts of a six-count indictment, all fifth-degree felonies of forgery, according to court records. Another forgery case against Huffine in 2000 in Delaware County was dismissed.
