A woman accused of unlawfully obtaining nearly $16,000 from a 91-year-old woman for whom she cared at a local assisted living facility was arrested and charged with exploitation of an elderly/disabled adult, according to Ocala police.
Regina Ann Weitlauf, 43, was taken into custody at her Southeast Ocala home. She was booked into the Marion County Jail and released Monday night after posting a $5,000 bond.
Weitlauf told the Star-Banner that she looked after the woman and would cash checks on her behalf, with the money always going to the woman.
When asked about the $15,698 officials say she did not turn over to the woman, Weitlauf declined to comment other than to say “I’m innocent” and to note that she has an attorney.
