Edmore woman convicted of embezzlement of 90-year-old man


STANTON, Mich. (WOOD) — An Edmore woman has been convicted of embezzlement after stealing from the 90-year-old she was responsible for caring for.

A jury on Thursday found Teri Miller, 58, guilty of embezzlement from a vulnerable adult between $50,000 and $100,000, embezzlement from a vulnerable adult between $1,000 and $20,000, use of a computer to commit a crime, three counts of using a financial transaction device without consent, and a tax filing failure tally.

The Michigan attorney general’s office said it took jurors less than a day to decide whether to convict.

the AG’s office charged Miller in July 2020, saying she stole money from the 90-year-old’s bank account and used her credit card to get cash advances. Miller had been hired to care for the 90-year-old woman by her brother, the victim’s son-in-law.

Miller’s husband, Kelly Miller, and brother, Tom Riva, pleaded no contest in the case in February under plea agreements. Both agreed to make restitution before sentencing.

Teri Miller is also facing a charge of resisting or obstructing a police officer. This case is still pending.

His sentencing date for the embezzlement charges has yet to be set.
