A Fall Creek woman has been charged in Eau Claire County Circuit Court with stealing $60,000 from a woman with developmental disabilities.
Court records show 44-year-old Michelle Eisold was charged with felony theft-false representation on Tuesday. According to a criminal complaint, a social worker from Eau Claire County Human Services reported the theft.
The social worker told investigators the victim had received a $90,000 from a life insurance policy after her mother passed away, WEAU-TV reported.
The victim issued a check to Eisold for $46,000 on Oct. 12, 2020, the complaint said. Eisold told detectives the check was a gift.
According to prosecutors, there were other large cash withdrawals between July and October of 2020.
Court records do not yet list a defense attorney for Eisold who could speak on her behalf.
