    Post: Hypothetical

    Posted by Carol on 3/01/06

    Hypothetical: Adam and Eve are 60 something, living
    together for the last 30 years. Both have children from a
    previous marriage. Each maintains individual bank
    accounts, nothing is jointly owned. State does not
    recognize commonlaw marriage. Adam is the beneficiary of
    her moderately sizable life insurance. Eve takes sick and
    dies (intestate) on Aug 28, a thursday. On Friday her
    social security check is automatically deposited. On
    Friday evening, for whatever reason, Adam has his 15 year
    old grandson begin withdrawing money from Eve's account
    with her ATM card (he has used it in the past with her
    permission and knows her password) in the maximum
    allowable daily amount after the bank is closed in the
    evening. By Tuesday 3K has been withdrawn, the account is
    all but empty except for $50.00. by now the bank has been
    notified that Eve has died and freezes the account. The
    withdrawals are caught on tape. What crime(s) if any by
    whom? any circumstances that would excuse or mitigate?
