Caregiver accused of stealing money from woman with multiple sclerosis: VIDEO























A local family is accusing a caregiver of taking money from a trust fund that was set up for a loved one suffering from multiple sclerosis.

Noel Zugay was the mother of two sons. Shortly after they were born, she began to show the effects of multiple sclerosis. Over the years, her health spiraled downward.

When her family sought the help of a home health aide, they settled on a woman named Teri Tvergyak Sidoti.

In 2005, Noel and her husband, Jack, got a divorce. Jack put $250,000 in a trust for her care. And when her parents passed away the next year, they left her an additional $590,000. Sidoti was named trustee of the money.

Noel died in 2014 at 58.

Before her death, her family was stunned to learn that $850,000 earmarked for her care was gone.

Bank records indicated that Sidoti had been transferring that money into her own bank account.

Thursday, a lawsuit was filed accusing Sidoti of defrauding the trust and depriving Noel’s sons of money their mother hoped to leave for them.

Sidoti’s attorney, Douglas Fouts, says his client was more than Noel’s caregiver, however. He says she was a friend and confidant, and he denies any wrongdoing.
