A Wisconsin woman has been charged with six felony-level crimes relating to her duties as a man's power of attorney. Officials allege that she failed to pay a man's health care bills and instead, she used the money for her personal expenses.

The 59-year-old woman allegedly abused her power of attorney privileges to steal money from the man she was caring for. Police in New Glarus first received news of the alleged theft in August 2016. Green County Human Services notified them that the woman was allegedly stealing.

If you lost them in Michigan or California, you also lost them in Wisconsin.

However, those accused of theft or larceny will have the ability to defend themselves in court.

Here are three common defenses used in theft crime trials:

-- You are the owner of the property: Perhaps you didn't steal the property at all, and you're the owner. If this is the case for you, then all you have to do is prove that you are the owner of the property and/or you have a valid claim to the property.
