A 51-year-old man from Georgia is charged with stealing $ 200,000 from a disabled person.

Vincent Wiggins, 51, is charged with taking the $ 200,000 from his 91-year-old mother with a disability.

Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that, Wiggins is accused of exploitation and intimidation of adults or disabled elderly.

The Columbus police said the money should have been used to pay for his mother's care in an assisted living center where her $ 30,000 bill was not paid.

Public defender Matthew Landreau said that Wiggins continued his hearing Thursday to give him more time to hire a private lawyer.
