Tort – Fiduciary Breach – Tobacco Farmer Father – Elder Abuse

Defendant daughter and her husband committed fraud and breach of fiduciary duty against her father, an illiterate and hearing-impaired 84-year-old tobacco farmer who amassed assets exceeding $1 million, by isolating him from his other three children, selling off his farm and siphoning off his money, and a Pittsylvania County Circuit Court says the father is entitled to $1.14 million from defendants.
