Attorney General Michael A. Delaney announces that Dale Robinson, 66 years old, of Pembroke, NH has been indicted by a Merrimack County Grand Jury on five counts of theft.
The indictments are the result of an investigation by the Attorney General's Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation Unit into Robinson's financial dealings with the victim, Preston Titus, now age 91, who Robinson had befriended. Four of the indictments allege that Robinson exercised unauthorized control over Mr. Titus' funds by depositing checks from one of Mr. Titus' investment accounts into his own personal account. The fifth indictment alleges that Robinson exercised unauthorized control over Mr. Titus' funds by writing a check to himself from Mr. Titus' investment account. Robinson is charged with stealing $166,500.00 from Mr. Titus.
The indictments each carry a maximum penalty of 7½-15 years at the New Hampshire State Prison and a fine of up to $4,000.
Robinson will be arraigned in the next few weeks at the Merrimack County Superior Court in Concord.
