GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4) – A couple who drained their grandparents’ bank account and got caught were sentenced in a Jefferson County courtroom on Monday.
William and Karen Young were convicted of stealing more than $225,000 from William Young’s grandparents, Harland and Frances Gibbs.
Other family members hired a forensic accounting firm last year to find out why money was slowly vanishing from the elderly couple’s savings account. The Gibbs’ were diagnosed with dementia and lived at Covenant Village in Westminster.
