(Lancaster) -- A couple has been ordered to stand trial on charges they bilked a woman's parents in Lancaster County out of nearly $700,000 by having her elderly father, who has dementia, sign a document transferring money to the couple's control.
Fifty-five-year-old John Fisher, of Milford, was a Delaware Valley School Board member, but resigned when he was charged along with his 56-year-old wife, Susanne, in April..
Investigators contend John Fisher, who is an accountant and certified financial planner, got his father-in-law to sign the document in 2009, then transferred $697,000 to a bank account his in-laws couldn't access.
Susanne Fisher's parents live in Lancaster County, where the case is being prosecuted.
John Fisher's attorney says he's ``confident when this case finally gets in front of a jury that the Fishers are going to be exonerated.''
