SUMMARY:Defendant Walter Strong was appointed conservator of two mentally disabled adults from 2004-2011. He used power as conservator to force the male victim to perform unpaid manual labor on Defendant's farm. He told the male victim that if he did not perform the labor he and his wife "would suffer serious harm." Defendant also forced the female victim to perform sex acts on defendant by promising to buy her candy or to take her to the dollar store. Victims lived in squalor in a trailer owned by Defendant. Defendant used victim's funds for personal benefit. Defendant pled guilty to sexual battery and theft of property over $60,000 and was sentenced to 120 months in prison. He was ordered to pay $105,480.84 in restitution.
