Two Virginia Social Workers Charged with Stealing Thousands from Vulnerable Elderly Victims

The U.S. Secret Service has charged a pair of Grayson County social services workers with fleecing two of their elderly clients out of thousands of dollars. A federal court complaint accuses Bernard Satterfield of draining an elderly woman’s bank account of nearly $25,000 after she came to Social Services seeking care and companionship. Satterfield used the woman's money to pay for his own personal expenses.

When confronted about the missing money, the complaint claims Satterfield told an investigator his boss also borrowed some money. Investigators determined Jenny Hall,
Hall, Satterfield's supervisor, allegedly has stolen $8,300 from a separate victim, using it to buy groceries and clothing. This victim had come to Social Services after being financially abused and neglected by his family, the complaint alleges. For more, read the story.
