East Dubuque Woman Receives Probation

An East Dubuque woman accused of stealing her mother’s retirement payments has been placed on probation. Court records from Dubuque County say 55 year old Lori Mejia plead guilty in May to dependent adult abuse-exploitation of more than $100. Mejia recently received a deferred judgement and was placed on 2-to 5 years of probation. Documents say between April 26th and October 5th of last year, Mejia improperly spent retirement payments meant for her 92 year old mother. At the time Mejia’s mother was a resident at Stonehill Franciscan Services. After being there for four months Mejia’s mother had accumulated a bill that totaled over $27,000, however only one payment of $1,500 had been made. Mejia claims she spent the money on her living expenses and entertainment while her mother lived with her.
