A North Kingstown woman is accused of doing the lowest of the lows. Stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from her own father.

49–year old Barbara Flaherty was arrested for transferring more than $200,000 dollars from her elderly father's bank account into her own.

The money was supposed to be used to pay for her father's care at an assisted living facility, instead Flaherty used the money to pay off her debt and go on a shopping spree.
