Md. man gets prison for taking $279,000 from elderly man
A Hagerstown man has been given 7 1/2 years in prison for bilking an elderly Boonsboro man out of more than a quarter-million dollars.
Forty-year-old Daniel Meldron was sentenced Monday for obtaining the property of a vulnerable adult with dementia. The victim had given Meldron power of attorney.
Meldron also must make restitution of about $279,000 he drained from one of the victim's accounts.
Meldron and his wife Angie were originally charged with stealing about $307,000 from the victim's accounts and reaping another $325,000 from sales of 26 antique cars.
Prosecutors dropped the other charges in return for Meldron's guilty plea.
They dropped charges against Angie Meldron in July after she agreed to testify against her husband.
