Elder Financial Fraud Case May Extend to Sheriff’s Employee

An senior citizen who contacted the Kern County Sheriff’s Department for investigation of elder financial fraud / elder financial abuse may have been victimized a second by the sergeant sent out to take her statement.

Gloria Moody, who went to live with her daughter Donna after she became ill, alleged that Donna embezzled money from her after Gloria gave her access to her bank account in order to pay her bills. Donna also tried to take her mother’s house and car according to Gloria, but she retained an attorney and got her house back.

Where Moody may have been re-victimized is that when Kern County Sheriff’s Department deputies came out to take her statement, Sgt. Vince Martinez became smitten with Donna’s 23 year-old daughter and immediately began dating her. Moody claims that Sgt. Martinez subsequently tried to discourage her from pursuing her case and showed little interest in helping her.

Sgt. Vince Martinez is on paid administrative leave while being investigated for obstruction of justice and falsification of reports, says Sheriff Donny Youngblood.
