Proposed Michigan House Bill 4264 Would Allow Consecutive Sentencing for Financial Exploitation of Vulnerable Adults

The elderly and otherwise vulnerable population are particularly susceptible to exploitation, financial and otherwise. A Proposed House Bill would give Judges the discretion to sentence perpetrators convicted of multiple offenses against vulnerable adults consecutively (back to back) as opposed to concurrently (at the same time).  This would provide Judges with the discretion to give these perpetrators a much more stiff penalty if the facts merit such treatment.
