Connah's Quay man stole £95,000 of his elderly mum's money | Parental Responsibility |

A man “frittered away” £95,000 of his elderly mother’s cash on holidays and a honeymoon, after he was made power of attorney over her financial affairs.


Engineer Michael Edward Palframan, from Connah's Quay, used the cash to fund a lavish lifestyle, bought jewellery and even used it to pay for his honeymoon – a sunshine Caribbean cruise.


Palframan, 53, of St David’s Court, was jailed for two years and eight months at MoldCrown Court today after he admitted two charges of dishonestly abusing his position as power of attorney over the affairs of Louise Palframan, 84, by applying her funds for his own purposes.


Mrs Palframan's home was sold in order to fund her care in a residential home – but after the defendant  spent the proceeds from that sale,  he started dipping into her pension.
