Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following press release:
Jackson, Miss.- Lori Hickson, 52, and Lisa Bradshaw, 54, both of Canton, have been arrested for exploitation of a vulnerable person, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.
Hickson and Bradshaw were arrested recently by an investigator with the Attorney General’s Office, in conjunction with the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force, following their indictments by a Madison County Grand Jury. The indictments allege that while Hickson and Bradshaw were employed as housekeepers and caregivers in the victim’s home, the defendants allegedly took well over $100,000 from his checking account by writing checks payable to themselves, without permission over a period of six months.
If convicted, Hickson and Bradshaw each face up to 10 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. As with all cases, the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
The case is being investigated by Jamie Patrick of the Attorney General’s Vulnerable Adults Unit and prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Jim Giddy of the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Division.
