MADISON (AP) - A 59-year-old northeast Nebraska woman has been accused of misusing nearly $11,600 of her son’s Social Security disability payments.
Margaret Hunt, of Battle Creek, is charged with felony theft by deception and intentional abuse of a vulnerable adult. The Office of the Inspector General for Social Security says Hunt was not living in Nebraska for several months while her disabled son, 30-year-old Leroy Tomes, was living alone in a trailer in Battle Creek. The office’s report says Tomes was in poor health, had little heat during the winter, and not much food or medicine.
