Scottsbluff woman accused of stealing from 90-year-old mother

Posted: Updated:

A Scottsbluff woman has been accused of stealing from the bank account of her ailing 90-year-old mother.
 
Authorities have charged 54-year-old Jeanette Ralston with theft and abuse of a vulnerable adult. Ralston was arraigned Monday in Scotts Bluff County Court.
 
An arrest warrant affidavit says a Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services caseworker contacted law enforcement authorities after Ralston didn't pay her mother's bill at a nursing home, where the woman is recovering from a fall. The affidavit says Ralston has her mother's power of attorney.
 
An investigator says Ralston has withdrawn more than $12,000 from her mother's bank account over a six-month period.
