A 93-year-old woman who had more than $200,000 removed from her bank accounts by Adams County Board member John Hibbert last November has testified that she did not give him permission to take the money, and does not remember signing power of attorney documents.
Hibbert's trial on charges of exploitation of an elderly person and theft began Tuesday morning in Quincy.
Hibbert is accused of taking about $210,000 in certificates of deposit, money market accounts and a checking account from Eleanor Lutes after she fell and broke her hip a year ago. Lutes signed over power of attorney documents and a will while in Blessing Hospital and a Camp Point nursing home, where she now lives.
