A Vernal man has been sentenced to state prison after his latest conviction. 50-year-old Mannix George Glines was sentenced last week to one to 15 years in prison for financially exploiting a vulnerable adult and was ordered to pay $60,168 dollars in restitution. The Utah Attorney General issued a press release about the conviction and sentencing, stating the following: This is Glines’ second felony conviction prosecuted by this office for the financial exploitation of the same victim, his mother. “Stealing from or abusing anyone vulnerable is abhorrent, but to couple that abuse of trust with the exploitation of a family member is truly reprehensible,” said Attorney General Reyes. “I applaud the Utah AG’s MFCU Division, led by Director Kaye Lynn Wootton. Her team is steadfastly committed to protecting the state’s most vulnerable adults from abuse, neglect, and exploitation.” The Medicaid Fraud and Patient Abuse Division of the Utah Attorney General’s Office filed charges against Glines in November 2022. Glines pleaded guilty to one count of financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult on January 3, 2024… Glines was taken into custody after the hearing to begin his sentence at the Utah State Correctional Facility.
