Can Aunt still inherit from someone if charged with financial exploiting that person? My Aunt stole over $200,000 from my grandmother - she was basically penniless when she died. My Aunt has been charged with financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult and theft by swindle over $35,000. Sounds like she will be pleading guilty to both felonies - they are in negotiations as to how much jail time, - Anyway, she along with her brother and sister were the heirs to the estate. The estate has a chance to recover a portion of that money - if it is recovered would the estate have to pay her portion to her - she already got $200,000 she stole.
