Financial protections for the elderly

Senate Bill 1409, sponsored by Sen. Michael Connelly (R-Naperville), would strengthen laws against the financial exploitation of the elderly or disabled. The measure also makes a technical change in current Illinois law expanding the legal venue for bringing prosecutions in financial exploitation cases. There are frequent instances, under current law, when a suspect lives in a different county or state from the victim, which creates an impediment to prosecution.
