Shelly Streck was charged Friday with two counts of abuse by a caretaker over her cruel plot to exploit an elderly couple in Enid, Oklahoma
According to KOCO, Shelley Streck showed the her elderly client’s husband a striptease video of herself and dressed provocatively at his house to get him to shell out more than just the cash payments for his wife’s 24-hour care.
The 36-year-old, Streck who was being paid in cash to care for the 85-year-old’s bedridden wife, 82, would dress provocatively round the house, as a weapon to get the victim to bend to her demands according to an affidavit.
She was charged Friday with two counts of abuse by a caretaker over her cruel plot to exploit an elderly couple in Enid, Oklahoma.
The elderly man, who has not been named, agreed to sign over his family heirlooms, added his caregiver’s name to his joint bank account and even bought a car listing Streck as a co-owner, court records show.
Streck made a play for the elderly couple’s home in a plot that involved ‘grooming [the man] to take over property and finances for her own financial gain.’
He also told officials with Oklahoma Adult Protective Services, APS, that he was ‘changing things to leave everything to Shelly’, the Star-Telegram reports.
The man also wanted Streck and her children to move into his house and continue to care for his wife, and wanted to add her name to the deed, according to an affidavit.
He also attempted to give her power of attorney but his lawyer refused.
Streck, a mom from Enid, Oklahoma, had been caring for the man’s wife who had been unable to communicate since suffering a stroke in 2012.
They met while Streck was working for Grace Care, which provides in-home caregivers, and became friends, according to records.
She was fired from her job for clocking in prior to arriving at a home, according to the affidavit, so the victim began paying her cash every week to care for his wife.
The victim told APS that he would give Streck extra money whenever she needed it.
A protective services worker said ‘it would appear that Streck has been grooming [the man] to take over property and finances for her own financial gain.’
They added that since his wife’s stroke, the man was ‘looking for attention anywhere he can get it and he is very lonely.’
The worker said noted that Streck ‘dresses inappropriately to get what she wants, taking advantage of him’ and that it was ‘not a normal caregiver-client relationship.’
Streck denies any wrongdoing claiming it had been the victim’s idea to leave her his home, car and heirlooms.
Each count of abuse by caretaker is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine in Oklahoma.
