Diane Badger, 73, of Dingle Road, Wombourne, and James Badger, 44, of Lamb Crescent, Wombourne, appeared at Stafford Crown Court on November 9, after defrauding a woman out of over £100,000 between 2017 and 2019.

Diane held a power of attorney over the victim's finances, but significant cash withdrawals from the victim's bank account, and the frequency with which they were made, raised suspicions.
