Conservator Pleads Guilty to Abuse, Theft

A former court-appointed conservator pleaded guilty Monday to theft and sexual battery against an elderly, disabled couple he was charged with protecting, according to The Tennessean. Walter Strong of Celina admitted to sexual battery of the woman and theft of $105,479 from the couple. He was ordered to make restitution, but his attorney said it was unlikely he would ever have the resources to pay back the full amount.  The decision comes on the heels of a recommendation by the Tennessee Bar Association to amend state conservatorship law.
