Man Charged With Embezzlement

Officials said that a man who was supposed to be looking out for his 93-year-old mother's best interests instead stole more than $50,000 from her.

Archie Moore was charged with embezzlement Monday after a task force that safeguards vulnerable adults alleged he emptied his mother's bank account in three months.

Moore attended a mandatory conservator class last year when was appointed conservator for his mother, Eddie.

Moore received a $50,520 settlement for a lawsuit that his mother had filed against a Vienna Township nursing home. Moore put the money in a bank account for his mother but a month later began what would become a series of 19 withdrawals that left the account with a negative balance.

Genesee County Sheriff Robert J. Pickell said the charge is the latest in a pattern of court-appointed guardians abusing their access to people's money.
