Woman charged with stealing $60,000 from disabled woman
(AP) — A Fall Creek woman has been charged in Eau Claire County Circuit Court with stealing $60,000 from a woman with developmental disabilities. Court records show 44-year-old Michelle Eisold was charged with felony theft-false representation on Tuesday.
A criminal complaint says an Eau Claire County Human Services social worker reported the theft. The social worker told investigators the victim had received a $90,000 from a life insurance policy after her mother passed away.
The complaint says Eisold told detectives a $46,000 check issued by the victim was a gift. According to prosecutors, there were other large cash withdrawals between July and October of 2020.
