WICOMICO CO., Md. - A Salisbury woman will spend 60 days behind bars after exploiting a vulnerable woman. Sixty-eight-year old Kathleen Littleton, was convicted of felony financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult, on Tuesday.

Littleton was appointed as the victim's power of attorney, after the victim's 88-year-old daughter, couldn't care for her daily needs any longer. With that power Littleton threatened sitters of the victim's, and fired those who got to close to them. She reprimanded sitters for taking the victim on outings, and for medical treatment. She also threatened to put the victim in a nursing home if they didn't do as she said.

Financial records showed that on October 31st, 2010, the victim had more than $99,000 in their account, but by December 31st, 2011, it was down to just nine cents. Some of the money was legitimately used to pay sitters, but much was not connected with care of the victim.

The victim died in March of 2010. Littleton was given $26,999.69 in the victim's will.

Littleton, who is a licensed CNA, was sentenced to 10 years, with all but 60 days suspended, followed by 3 years probation, during which she'll have to pay restitution of $$26,999.69 to the victim's daughter.
