Medical Equipment Supplier Indicted for Theft and Exploitation
of Vulnerable Adults

BALTIMORE, MD (August 6, 2007) - Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Paris G. George of Timonium, Maryland, was arrested today following his indictment on July 23, 2007 in Baltimore County. The indictment charges George, 53, with 17 counts of felony theft and four counts of felony financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult. George is alleged to have stolen deposits made by customers attempting to purchase medical equipment. The case will be prosecuted by the Criminal Division of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office.

While a criminal charge is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and every individual is presumed innocent unless the State proves the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, felony theft is punishable by a maximum sentence of up to 15 years and/or a fine of up to $25,000.00. Felony financial abuse of a vulnerable adult carries a maximum penalty of up to 15 years and/or a fine of up to $10,000.00.
