Alameda Judge Charged in Elder Theft Denies Charges

Paul Seeman, the Alameda County judge who has been charged with stealing from his now-deceased elderly neighbor, denied in court papers that he acted inproperly and unethically, saying instead he was “just trying to be helpful.

Seeman, 57, has pleaded not guilty to one count of elder theft (elder financial abuse) and 11 counts of perjury, and an enhancements alleging that he stole at least $200,000 from Anne Nutting, his neighbor. He on $525,000 bail and has been reassigned to small claims cases while awaiting trial.

Prosecutors accuse Seeman of befriending Nutting, 97, after her husband died in 1999, getting power-of-attorney, stealing her property and neglecting to repay a $250,000 loan. He is also accused of barring her from her own house from 1999 to 2007, the year she died.

Neighbors are defending Judge Seeman. But Howard Abelson, who was Ms. Nutting’s attorney and who turned him into police, said he did so because he had seen “conduct that I thought potentially was not proper.”
