As a trusted Birmingham Financial Exploitation in the Third Degree Defense Attorney, Jason Stoves works diligently to ensure all our clients understand their charges and the legal process. This crime is referred to under the Code of Alabama (1975) § 13A-6-197 as follows:

  • Knowingly and illegally benefiting from the resources of an elderly person without their understanding or consent at a value of under $500.
  • Deceiving or misguiding an elderly person to gain unlawful control over their resources.
  • Abuse of a position of trust or confidence to exploit an elderly person financially.

Financial exploitation of an elderly person in the third degree is a Class A misdemeanor. This means it could carry serious penalties like jail time and heavy fines and court costs. Do not get caught in court without an experienced attorney to protect you, your rights, and your freedom.

What are the Best Defenses to these Cases?

While every case is different and should be treated as such, there are a number of common defenses that are almost always used in financial exploitation cases:

  • Consent: If the elderly person gave their informed and voluntary consent for the accused to use their resources, this can serve as a defense.
  • Mistaken Identity: In some cases, the accused may not be the actual perpetrator of the crime. Proving this can result in the charges being dropped.
  • Insufficient Evidence: If the prosecution cannot provide enough evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused exploited the elderly person, the accused could be acquitted.
