Grandma gambles away $100,000.00 college trust fund belonging to her grandson - But she earned enough credits for the free Majestic Casino Buffet

A former Hammond woman has been charged in Lake Superior Court for allegedly draining her grandson’s $100,000 college trust fund.

Edna Sue Pate, 73, who lists an address in Minden, La., is charged with stealing at least $100,000 from her grandson’s trust account, which had been established in 2003 with her as trustee.

When the grandson’s father, Pate’s former son-in-law, tried to contact Pate about his son’s December 2011 graduation, Pate ignored all communications, the probable cause affidavit states. A civil suit was filed, and Pate skipped court appearances and had a warrant issued for her arrest.

Bank records show Pate wrote 111 checks totaling $97,007 between February 2004 and November 2007. From a second education trust account opened in December 2009 and closed with a negative balance in April 2010, Pate made 49 withdrawals totaling $6,483 at an ATM at Majestic Star II in Gary or Ameristar in East Chicago.

Pates gambling losses at Majestic Star totaled $93,662.

Edna Sue Pate voted for Obama, then told him that her grandson was a little short on his tuition. She asked Obama how did he get through college with no money of his own?

Casinos are built upon the losing players. So much for wisdom and age.
