(KSL News) -- A Utah attorney was supposed to help an elderly woman who had been scammed. Instead prosecutors, say he scammed her himself.
The Salt Lake County District Attorney's office says the 87-year old woman asked Jay Taylor of Sandy to go after those who had scammed her out of $15,000.
Taylor convinced the woman to take out a home equity loan in the amount of $100,000 and give him power of attorney.
Prosecutors say Taylor then withdrew $80,0000 for his own personal use.
He has been charged with two second-degree felonies.
