Abuse of power case

In another Involuntary Redistribution of Assets (IRA) case, an Ohio woman was recently convicted of befriending a woman to get power of attorney over her.  A jury found Lisa Hanusosky guilty of two counts of theft and one count of forgery with regard to power of attorney activities for Lucille New, now 86.  

This case is important for two reasons.  First, taking advantage of old people is a bullying type tactic and at EoD, we don’t like bullies!  Second, this is one more example of an IRA case not being relegated to a civil court and instead being treated as the criminal action that it is.  We also noted that perhaps using other people’s money is habitual for Ms. Hanusosky as she was represented by a public defender – i.e., taxpayer-funded attorney.  

EoD fails to understand the “I’m entitled” mentality rampant in today’s society.  We don’t understand people of such low character that they would assert themselves into the life of others and then presume to take resources that are in no way intended for them.  Whether it’s $1 or $1,000,000 is inconsequential.  The public defender evidently attempted to argue that what Ms. Hanusosky did was not “legally wrong.”  Just because something is not illegal doesn’t make it right.  To use that as an excuse is a low standard of human behavior.
