Grant Wilms, 44

The Johnson County DA came out on Friday (8-28-09) with a story regarding three men, two of which are these guys and they happen to be Father and Son. Grant Wilms, 44, and Hermann Wilms, 74, along with Kenneth Opstein, 83, of Sioux City, Iowa, were arrested Thursday.

  District Attorney Steve Howe said that the scam, which hooked people seeking a discount on prescription drugs, claimed many thousands of victims across the country. -KC Star

Both of these men are being held on $1,000,000 bonds. Mapping their addresses shows they were close proximity neighbors and fronted the fairways of Deer Creek. I have probably put a ball OB into one of their yards at some point in my life. But then just went back to my humble home that I didn’t acquire from fraulant actions against the elderly. 

They are charged with 13 counts of “Making a False Writing”  14 counts of “Theft” and 1 count of “Computer Crime

I bet they sent the old man in to make friends with our Parents and Grandparents so they could scam them to be able to drive luxury cars and live on the golf course.

***UPDATE***
Looks like the old man & his kid struck a plea deal on 11-16-09. Jury trial was cancelled and sentencing is scheduled for 1-06-10. Apparently the plea resulted in 4 Counts of “Making a False Writing“; 3 charges of “Theft <$1000″; 1 charge of “Criminal Use of a Credit Card < $1000″
 
Only the Making a False Writing is a Felony albeit a Non-Person as well. I am guessing time served and probation. We’ll see what happens, shall we?
I would also expect to see a bond modification in the near future. $1,000,000 is a little high I would think for a level 8 non-person felony and some misdemeanors. I mean that’s like murder and kidnapping ransom bond.
