Woman Accused of Scamming Man with Brain Injury

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – A Cannon Ball, N.D. woman is accused of taking advantage of a man with a brain injury after he won money at a casino.

Fifty-three-year-old Jeanette Blackcloud is charged with felony exploitation of a vulnerable adult, and a warrant has been issued for her arrest. Court documents do not list an attorney for her.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the man knew Blackcloud, and told her he wanted to buy some clothes for her grandchildren with some of his winnings at Prairie Knights Casino on Jan. 14.

Blackcloud is accused of taking the man to Bismarck and Mandan and getting him to purchase things that were not for his intended purpose – including a $2,500 vehicle that was put in Blackcloud’s name.
