Two women are now charged with taking money from Macon's mentally disabled adults.

Earlier this month, 38-year-old Kismar King of Byron was arrested on charges of theft by taking and financial exploitation of a disabled adult.

King was working as an administrative assistant at HOPE, or Helping Out People Environments, where she gained access to clients' debit cards, according to an arrest warrant.

King allegedly withdrew cash from bank accounts containing the clients' benefits and used the money for herself.

The Telegraph reported last week that QuartinusPlesette Graham, 32, of Sandersville, who also worked at HOPE, was arrested on similar charges and accusations, according to warrants.
