Sioux City Man Accused of Looting Nursing Home Resident’s Account

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) – Authorities say a Sioux City man looted the checking account of a nursing home resident.

Woodbury County court records say 52-year-old Ronald Taylor is charged with dependent adult abuse. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call Friday from The Associated Press. Taylor’s next court hearing is scheduled for Sept. 13.

Court records say Taylor held a power attorney for the man, who has dementia and can’t handle his finances. The records say Taylor spent nearly $23,000 of the man’s money since July 28, 2017, wiping out the man’s account.
