A McHenry County judge denied a defense motion to dismiss charges against a Lake in the Hills man accused of stealing $225,000 from his mother-in-law.
Authorities have charged Michael W. Greer, 46, with felony exploitation of an elderly person and forgery, saying Greer used his position of authority over his now-deceased mother-in-law to get access to her money.
Greer's attorney, Thomas Loizzo, has said a police investigator misled grand jurors when he testified Greer held power of attorney over his mother-in-law.
Instead, Loizzo says, Greer's mother-in-law lent him the money for his business - making the case a civil rather than a criminal matter.
