Neshoba Woman Indicted for Vulnerable Adult Abuse

PRESS RELEASE

JACKSON, Miss. — A Neshoba County resident is facing charges she exploited a vulnerable person under her care, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.

Rosemary Stribling, 37, of Philadelphia, turned herself in to the Neshoba County Sheriff’s Office Monday following indictment by the Neshoba County Grand Jury for exploitation of a vulnerable person. Stribling is accused of financially exploiting the victim by using the alleged victim’s debit/credit card, for her own profit or advantage, unbeknownst to the alleged victim. The defendant was in a paid caregiver role at the time of the alleged crime.

If convicted, Stribling faces up to ten years in prison. As with all cases, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

The case is being investigated by Shannon Spence and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Marvin Sanders of the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Division/Vulnerable Adults Unit.
