Woman Accused of Bilking Genoa Twp. Man Headed To Trial
March 9, 2018
A Lansing woman charged with stealing more than $50,000 from an elderly Genoa Township man is headed to trial.
46-year-old Jolyn Suzanne McAllister was recently bound over to Livingston County Circuit Court, following District Court Judge Carol Sue Reader’s ruling that there was enough evidence to send the case to trial.
McAllister is charged with one felony count each of false pretenses $50,000 to $100,000, uttering and publishing a document affecting real property, identity theft and larceny in a building. Livingston County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the man’s home in January of 2017 on the report of a theft in progress. The victim told deputies that he and McAllister were partners in a property management business when she took $4,500 in cash from his home.
While the cash was recovered, authorities say that further investigation revealed McAllister had signed checks and other legal documents in the victim’s name over a one-year period for more than $50,000.
Future court dates for McAllister have not been set at this time. (JK/DK)
