PHOENIX — A Tucson man has been indicted on multiple criminal charges after he allegedly used his position of trust to take money from vulnerable adults, Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s Office announced.

Hector Andres Aleman faces 20 felony charges including fraudulent schemes and artifices, forgery, computer tampering and taking the identity of another after allegedly gaining access to the funds of the three adults and transferring the money to himself, according to a press release.

The indictment alleges Aleman from March through November 2018 applied for loans in the name of two of the adults without their knowledge and kept the cash for himself.

Aleman is also accused of falsifying probate documents for a recently deceased adult so he could direct the estate’s assets to himself, according to the indictment.

The Tucson Police Department handled the investigation of the case.
