A Texas woman who was locked up in December for contempt for refusing to repay $402,000 that she removed from her mother's bank accounts in 2008 was released from Wayne County Jail.
Wayne County Probate Judge David Szymanski ordered Janice Stanton Hines' release after her husband gave her mother's court-appointed conservator a check for that amount.
Stanton Hines withdrew nearly $800,000 from the accounts of her mother, M. Louise Stanton of Detroit after Stanton gave her daughters access to the accounts. When confronted about what she had done, court records show, Stanton Hines returned some of the money leaving a $500,000 shortfall.
