Douglas J. Koufman is charged with exploitation of an elderly person or disabled adult for more than $100,000. The 57-year-old surrendered at the Palm Beach County Jail and posted bail.
Koufman's attorney Michael B. Cohen says: "We vigorously deny the allegations and we believe that the evidence will eventually show that Mr. Koufman will be exonerated."
According to an affidavit by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, Koufman misappropriated at least $873,000 from his mother's trust fund.
His mother, Charlotte Koufman, is now 88 and suffers from dementia.
