After nearly three months of investigation, police continue to pore through the finances of an Appleton man accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from his elderly and disabled clients.
Jeffrey M. Schend, meanwhile, demanded a speedy trial on the seven theft charges filed against him in the early stages of the police probe.
Schend, 44, will return to Outagamie County Court on Tuesday for an arraignment hearing where he’ll enter pleas to six felony theft charges and one misdemeanor theft count.
Schend, who operated a corporate guardianship business, is accused of stealing about $500,000 from the accounts of his elderly and disabled clients.
As a guardian, Schend was appointed by county judges to handle finances for those deemed incompetent to manage their own affairs.
