Scams Target Elderly Californians
According to the Bee article, in late August, authorities arrested Delbert Joe Modlin, 63, on charges of financial elder abuse, grand theft, and securities fraud. His release on bail conditioned that he agree not to practice law or see clients until the criminal proceedings ended. Modlin has been licensed to practice law in California since 1987.
