Regina Hill Accused Of Stealing $100K From Elderly Woman

How was she even allowed to run for office?

Attorney John Martino, Director of Advocacy for Community Legal Services, says cases of financial exploitation for the elderly are always important and need to be looked into thoroughly. “Any time we receive any kind of information about potential elder exploitation that may be occurring, we’re taking to take those allegations very seriously,” Martino said, who is now representing the woman. 

To provide protection, Martino filed a petition for an injunction, temporarily banning Hill from having direct or indirect contact with the woman while the investigation continues. “While anyone who is investigating the matter figures out what’s going on, we can make sure that the senior citizens can continue to take care of themselves,” he said. 

According to the New York Post, the alleged victim told investigators she never allowed Hill to spend her money. She remembers signing “some” sort of document” bu” never understood what she was signing and “wou” d never agree” to “give Hill power of attorney. 

This isn’t the first time the Commissioner has dealt with legal woes. Her list of past 21 arrests, including drug offenses, fraud, using bad checks, and DUIs, dates back to 1983. While Hill hasn’t officially been charged in the investigation, the City of Orlando confirmed they are aware of the case but say they don’t have the authority to take disciplinary actions against an elected official.

Despite the case, Hill doesn’t seem bothered. On Facebook, she wrote, “Despite everything, I chose to spend some quality time with my grandbabies over a late-night discussion regarding the unsavory part of my political life and the world around us over a meal.”
