WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A judge has restored a mentally impaired man’s assets by reversing transactions that authorities say he was forced into by his niece.

The Williston Herald (https://bit.ly/1QGVvmn ) reports Northwest District Judge Robin Schmidt has voided all document exchanges between Sandra Potter and her 85-year-old uncle Robert Gross that were dated after Jan. 1, 2013.

Authorities this month filed exploitation charges against the 68-year-old Montana woman. She and Thomas Potter, Gross’s nephew, were accused a year ago of keeping Gross in deplorable living conditions and getting him to sign over oil well rights. Authorities later dropped the charges, but continued to investigate.

An oil well and land in Arizona are among the assets returned to Gross.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Sandra Potter. Current court records don’t list her attorney.
