DBQ Teen Pleads Guilty to Theft from Relative

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) – A Dubuque woman has pleaded guilty to stealing from the same relative her mother is accused of victimizing.

18-year-old Anna Billmeyer pleaded guilty last week to theft. Her sentencing is scheduled for March 4.

Her mother, Kathryn Billmeyer, has pleaded not guilty to theft and abuse of a dependent adult. Kathryn Billmeyer’s trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 12.

Prosecutors say Kathryn Billmeyer is accused using her aunt’s money to make more than $48,000 in purchases from November 2016 to May 2018. Billmeyer held a power of attorney and had control of her aunt’s accounts.

Prosecutors say Anna Billmeyer used the woman’s credit card to buy nearly $1,600 worth of items.
