The following is a press release from the State of Mississippi:

A Pearl River County husband and wife have been indicted and arrested for exploiting over $100,000 from a vulnerable person, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.

Judy Quinn Anselmo, 56, was arrested by investigators with the Attorney General's Vulnerable Adults Unit on October 17.  Her husband, Randall Alexander Anselmo, 65, recently turned himself in  to authorities in Pearl River County on Monday.  The arrests follow recent indictment by the Pearl River County Grand Jury on one count each exploitation of a vulnerable person.  The indictment alleges that the defendants exploited a vulnerable relative for over a year and a half by "the illegal or improper use of (victim's) resources for Randy and Judy Anselmo's profit or advantage, with or without the consent of (the victim) by using money that (the victim) received in the form of social security, annuity payment, and other monies…for their own use amounting to a financial loss of $100,005.61."

"We thank Sheriff Allison and his deputies for their assistance in arresting these defendants to face charges," said Attorney General Hood.

If convicted, the Anselmos face up to 10 years each behind bars.    They were booked into the Pearl River County jail and bond set at $10,000.

The case is being investigated by Perry Tate and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Marvin Sanders of the Attorney General's Vulnerable Adults Unit.

As with all cases, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
