Forest Grove Police arrested a man in connection to the exploitation of an elderly victim, which included about $50,000 of the victim's money spent on vacations, bathroom remodeling and online adult entertainment, among other things.
Shawn Michael Vilhauer, 44, was arrested on charges of first-degree criminal mistreatment and first-degree aggravated theft, which are both felonies, according to police. The arrest came after Vilhauer was indicted on the charges and a five-month investigation, according to police.
Vilhauer became responsible for the elderly victim in the fall of 2008, police said. Investigators determined that Vilhauer had also used the $50,000 for online gambling and mortgage payments, and left the victim's medical bills and other care expenses unpaid, police said.
