Sheriff's Office arrests two on Criminal Mistreatment, Theft charges involving vulnerable 73-year-old (Photo) - 12/06/17

On Monday, Nov. 20, 2017, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office arrested two Redland residents on charges including Criminal Mistreatment and Theft -- following an investigation into their handling of the finances of a vulnerable 73-year-old over whom they'd been given power of attorney.

Suspects Jack Allen Dunn, 43, and Rosemarie Hildegard Henley, 49, are accused of abusing their power over Wayne Faulk, 73, who lives on a farm on Potter Road in the Oregon City area.

Faulk is developmentally disabled. In mid-2015, Faulk granted Dunn and Henley -- who live near Faulk's farm -- power of attorney. Under the deal, Dunn and Henley assumed control of Faulk's finances, which include disability payments and Social Security benefits. They also began working farm animals on Faulk's 40-acre property.

Before Wayne Faulk granted power of attorney to Dunn and Henley, Wayne Faulk's sister-in law, Linda Faulk, had been managing Wayne Faulk's income since 2012.

At the prompting of an attorney for the Faulk family trust, Sheriff's Office detectives, in cooperation with Adult Protective Services, began an in-depth investigation of possible financial irregularities relating to Dunn and Henley's handling of Wayne Faulk's income.

Detectives found that Dunn and Henley had allegedly spent tens of thousands of dollars in funds belonging to Wayne Faulk on purchases for themselves.

The Sheriff's Office arrested Dunn and Henley on Nov. 20. Their booking photos are attached. They were transported to Clackamas County Jail and booked on charges including:

Rosemarie Henley:
- 2 counts: Criminal Mistreatment in the First Degree
- 2 counts: Criminal Mistreatment in the Second Degree
- 4 counts: Theft in the First Degree

Jack Dunn:
- 2 counts: Criminal Mistreatment in the First Degree
- 2 counts: Criminal Mistreatment in the Second Degree
- 4 counts: Theft in the First Degree
- 1 count: Possession of an Unlawful Silencer

In October 2016, Clackamas County Circuit Court named a new limited guardian and conservator for Wayne Faulk. A court-appointed advocate has also been assigned to help Wayne Faulk maintain his independence.
