They shouldn't have been handling his money in the first place. I'm not sure why that's so hard for people to pick up on. Do any of you have a joint bank account with your parents? Do any of you let your parents buy things in your name, or with your money? When was the last time you looked at your bank account and thought "hmmm, mom didn't spend as much as I thought she would?". Never? That's because only stupid people let others (including their parents) spend their money.
I never had a joint bank account, but my mother knew my pin number and if she was out running errands, would use my card if I had bills to pay and she happened to be going to the bank. Similarly, if I went out the buy groceries so she didn't have to do it, I would have access to her card and bank account. We didn't steal from each other, because we're family and not s***ty people. I understand the concept of having access to a family member's money, but I don't understand the concept of using your family's money without their permission.
