Financial adviser sentenced to 5 years for bilking disabled woman out of inheritance

With a supportive family, and, until three years ago, a father in Upper Arlington who cared for her, she got by working as a grocery-store greeter and other jobs and lived on her own.

But two months after Robert Yeamans died, Beaver put her complete trust in Jason Wade Cox, 39, a financial adviser her father had selected.

And that’s when Cox promptly began to steal thousands of dollars, transferring funds out of the original account and into Beaver’s private checking account and then blowing much of it on gambling. Cox eventually would drain Beaver’s entire inheritance, and then urge her to sell her condo and move into a bedbug-infested apartment in Whitehall.
