Tulare Man Sentenced For Elder Abuse, Theft

Posted:
TULARE, Calif. (KMPH) -

A man who was trusted to take care of his elderly aunt and uncle, will now serve time for stealing half a million dollars from them.

This week, Judge James Hollman sentenced 48-year-old Keith Little, of Tulare, to five years probation, and a five year state prison sentence was suspended. As a condition of probation, Little must serve one year in county jail.

He will begin to serve the one year term in county jail on May 20, 2013. He will also serve a six month term in federal custody on related charges.

On October 23, 2012, Little pled no contest to two counts of felony theft from an elder, and one misdemeanor count of elder abuse. From 2004 to 2010, while operating as the trustee for the estates of his elderly aunt and uncle, Keith Little stole more than $500,000 from them.

He also failed to authorize necessary medical treatment for his aunt while she was in a nursing facility.
