Abuse of Power of Attorney

On June 9, 2019 the Red River Parish Sheriff’s Office (RRPSO) received a complaint regarding a theft. The complainant reported that a family member had abused a “Power of Attorney” assignment by writing unauthorized checks on the victim’s account (exceeding $2,000) and unlawfully transferring ownership of a vehicle.

RRPSO detectives investigated the claims and obtained an arrest warrant on the suspect. On July 22, 2019 deputies arrested the individual without incident and transported her to the Red River Parish Jail for booking.

Sharon Taylor, B/F, age 57 of the 1200 block of Postell Road, Coushatta, LA was charged with Exploitation of Persons with Infirmities, Theft of A Motor Vehicle and Forgery.

Taylor posted a $6,000 bond and was released the same day pending a trial date.
