Couple charged in exploitation case

JACKSON, Miss. —  

A Pearl River County couple has been indicted on a charge of exploitation of a vulnerable adult in a case involving a loss of over $100,000.

Attorney General Jim Hood said in a news release received by The Sun Herald 65-year-old Randall Alexander Anselmo and his 56-year-old wife, Judy, are accused of taking a vulnerable relative's Social Security check, annuity payment and other money over an 18-month period.

Hood says the wife was arrested Monday. The husband had turned himself in Oct. 17.

They were booked at the county jail and bonds were set at $10,000. Each faces up to 10 years in prison.

The case will be prosecuted by a member of the attorney general's vulnerable adults unit.

It was unclear whether the suspects have attorneys.
