The aptly-named Ryan Michael Leach, 33, was charged with on Monday with exploitation of the elderly by Sarasota County Sheriff’s investigators, according to Sheriff’s Office media release.
Detectives say Leach gained Power of Attorney over his 84-year-old granny’s accounts in 2010 and soon started leeching off of her savings, spending some of her money at bars, restaurants, hotels, theme parks, airfare, and recently bought a $14,000 Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
Detectives determined Leach took a total of $102,277 from his grandmother’s accounts.
His granny, who displays confusion and cognitive impairment, told investigators Leach said she would be placed in a nursing home if he was put in jail.
