An Ellsworth County jury yesterday found 47-year-old Lori Mayfield of Wichita guilty of one felony count of mistreatment of a dependent adult, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Mayfield was charged with the crime in connection with purchasing a vehicle for herself with funds from her impaired adult daughter’s assets, for which she had been appointed conservator by court order. 

Ellsworth County District Court Judge Steve Johnson presided over the trial.  Sentencing has not yet been scheduled.

The case was investigated by the Kansas Department for Children and Families Adult Protective Services and the Kanopolis Police Department.
