Jacqueline Judith Teet

A 55-year-old woman from Macon was indicted this month on charges that she stole money and Social Security payments from a disabled man in Commerce.

 

Jacqueline Judith Teet, who provided a Macon address, was indicted for felony theft and exploitation of a disabled person.

The victim is in a Commerce nursing home.

The indictment alleges that Teet stole $5,000 from the man on June 3 and that she also changed the payee information on the victim’s Social Security account and acquired his checks, which paid the man $1,312 a month. She took the checks during an eight-month span and stole about $9,100, according to the indictment.

Teet was arrested following an investigation by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. Following her arrest, she posted a bond of $10,000 on July 3.

Investigators said Teet had access to the victim because at the time she was his caregiver.

A second person, who has Athens connections, has been indicted on the same charges in the case, but that person as of Friday has not been officially arrested and charged.
