Woman Accused of Embezzlement for Stealing from Vulnerable Elderly man

A 67-year-old Flint woman could potentially spend the rest of her life in prison for embezzlement.

The Michigan Attorney General’s Office has charged Constance Roberts with four counts each of Embezzlement from a Vulnerable Adult of $100,000 or more and failure to file or false return of taxes. Officials say Roberts was in a long term relationship with a married man 20 years older than her, who would occasionally give her small gifts of money and property. However, Roberts allegedly began taking large sums of money and vehicles between 2018 and 2021 as the man’s mental faculties began declining. She allegedly completely drained the victim’s bank accounts of $3 million in that time frame, while failing to report the income on her Michigan tax returns.

Each count of embezzlement is a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. The tax counts are felonies punishable by up to 5 years in prison.
