Release Date: Feb 13, 2018

MINNEAPOLIS – (February 13, 2018) – A Salina woman was found guilty today of mistreatment of a dependent adult, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Meg Ellen Gravette-Holmgren, 43, pleaded guilty today in Ottawa County District Court to one felony count of mistreatment of a dependent adult. The case stemmed from an investigation by the attorney general’s Fraud and Abuse Litigation Division which discovered that between July and November 2014, Gravette-Holmgren acted as durable power of attorney for her mother who was a dependent adult. The defendant spent her mother’s money for unauthorized purchases for herself. As part of the plea, Gravette-Holmgren agreed to pay $67,374.39 in restitution to her mother.

District Judge Rene Young took the plea and scheduled sentencing for May 8 at 9:30am.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Paul Brothers of Schmidt’s office.
