Woman Accused of Depleting Mother-in-Law's Account

Posted March 24, 2008

— A Chatham County woman has been charged with stealing $92,000 from her elderly mother-in-law, authorities said.

Kimberly Giles Rollick, 41, of 2693 Bear Creek Church Road in Bear Creek, was charged with exploitation of an elder adult, embezzlement and obtaining property by false pretense. She was released on bond and is scheduled to appear in court April 14.

Rollick is accused to taking more than $92,000 from an annuity fund account held by her 90-year-old mother-in-law, with whom she lived at the time. Investigators said they believe she depleted the account for her personal use without the mother-in-law’s knowledge or consent.

    Iamforjustice- You may only know as much as you read but is is still your choice as a human being to read it and draw your conclusions and since we are apparently all aware that the article is not the whole story, we should also save the judgment. O and I have just recently graduated from high school as of this december. As for african americans only being in the slave chapter that is a completely incorrect fact. Maybe it was like that when you were in school, but things have been updated since then.

    Rachel, Visit my profile again and let me know what happens. I hope all works out for your family.

    My apologies to you but the anger comes reading what the reporters post. It is not that we are judemental but we only know as much as we read. And that plays a role in everyday life. Even in history books which is a bunch of lies because us African Americans are only mentioned in slavery chapter...but I digress. Again I am very sorry if I said anything to offend you but I really don't think I did and welcome to GOLO. I guess you can be an inspiration to us all.

    Rachel, I hope your mother gets justice. I feel for what your family is going through. No we don't know the whole story. That is the biggest issue with the media. Bad news sales ads. Yes we are all jugemental when it comes to things like this. We all hate to see children or elderly taken advantage of. That is where the venom comes. I hope that you and your entire family can come to peace and understanding. It looks like you guys will have a long way to go.

    ...here is the rest of my fist comment...some older than my mother, She still has two young children at home who need her, while on the other hand my aunts have grown children, some older than my mother. Any judge who sentences her to jail would have to be blind and heartless.

    am Kimberly's daughter. There is a lesson everyone needs to learn...you can't always assume that someone is guilty from the news. This story is not detailed in the slightest. For example, it does not say that my mother has been taking care of my grandmother for over 18 years now (as long as I have been alive) EVEN after my father died. To all of you asking where her husband is at now you know (he died in ‘02). She was also placed as my grandmother’s power of attorney. This article does not mention my two aunts, my grandmother's only living children, who started this whole thing bc of their selfishness and greed. It doesn't tell you that they never lifted a finger to help my grandmother and they only came around when they needed something. My mother is a selfless woman who has done everything in her power to care for my grandmother, not to mention her 3 children. She still has two young children at home who need her, while on the other hand my aunts have grown children, some older

    She certainly is a pretty woman. A young 41 years old. She may spent some time in jail, but who knows? She may get probation. It would be hard for me to think that her husband didn't know something about this. She let greed consume her thoughts and feelings. Another sad one, especially taking this from a 90 woman. How many years does she have left anyway?

    Shoot, if you knew my ex- mother in law, you would steal from her too. Wonder where the husband/son was while this was going on. You just cannot spend $92,000 and your spouse not be suspicious.

    This situation is getting too prevalent and we are more and more become desensitized to these kinds of stories until it hits home. Something needs to be done. I understand now that jail is not a deterrent but a way for people like her to learn from her mistakes and when she gets out she will cause more havoc. We need to give people like this a lobotomy and send them to the dessert.

    If she has POA I don't know that she could be charged for stealing, she could legally withdrawn the money.Family can be very greedy and selfish, its bad enough when someone dies but to take this woman’s money while she is living is unbelievable. Where is the son? More to this story I think.
