30 days in jail for stealing Alzhiemer's Patient's home....

This is the most disgusting thing I have ever read.  Two women preyed on a 93-year old Alzheimer's patient in New York. They stole his house and left him homeless.  They received a whopping 30 DAYS in jail.
Basically they forged his name, saying he had sold them the house.  Then THEY sold the house and kept the money.  They also forged his name and refinanced other properties he owned, keeping the mortgage money.  
Words cannot convey my sense of outrage.  Nor can I understand how anyone could be such a scumbag.
Happy Thanksgiving, right?

This is a terrible thing, taking advantage of those that are affected by one of the worst diseases around.

What a travesty of justice! Having been in the senior care industry for 15 years, I'm thoroughly convinced that we need zero tolerance laws for abuses towards the elderly, (whether its financial , emotional or physical)It seems like common sense and who would argue against it. Harm a senior(with intent), GO TO JAIL!
(and not for 30 days)
