Massachusetts Man, Previously Charged With Animal Cruelty, Now Charged With Embezzling $130K From Elderly Woman

From UPI on 2/12/14:

A Polish immigrant in Massachusetts charged with abusing the dog known as "Puppy Doe" has been charged with stealing from the elderly woman he cared for.

Bail was set at $500,000 on the new charges Tuesday for Radoslaw Czerkawski, 32, the Boston Herald reported. Czerkawski, allegedly in the United States illegally, was already held without bail on 12 counts of animal cruelty.  ...  Czerkawski lived with Janina Stock, 95, in Quincy, Mass., from January to her death in August, investigators say. Her family hired him because he spoke Polish and paid him $1,500 a month. Prosecutors say that in March Czerkawski took Stock to the bank, claimed to be her grandson and arranged for $130,000 in assets to be placed in a joint account.
