I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Do you have a question regarding this?
Tell me, does your sister live in Houston?
Thank you. That will be jurisdiction then. That is, if she lives in Houston and the crime was committed in Houston? That will be the police agency that would investigate and prosecute this crime.
So you can report this crime to the police department in Houston and request they investigate and prosecute.
Now, it is important to understand the police have discretion; they are not required to investigate and prosecute any particular report of misconduct.
So it may be the police refuse to take the case; they may tell you that you can sue her in civil court.
You mentioned probate; the executor of the estate in probate could sue her, in civil court, to recover for the fraud she has committed.
Please let me know if you have more questions. Happy to help if I can.
