DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - An Altoona man has been charged with stealing about $38,000 from his ailing father.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2dOEUiS ) that Jeffrey Kass has pleaded not guilty to a charge of dependent adult abuse-exploitation. He’s due back in court Nov. 4.

Court documents say Kass is conservator for his father and handles his finances. The documents say Jeffrey Kass took $20,000 from a joint account he and his father had to pay off a loan and a credit card and then took $18,000 to pay most of what he owed his father and mother in a civil lawsuit judgment.

Police have said Kass acknowledged spending his father’s money but denied using it on loans or credit cards.
