Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Are there laws broken, YES, she has committed fraud and theft and also financial abuse of the elderly or infirm. You need an attorney first and foremost to she her in court. The attorney will also take all of the records and proof you have and will go to the State Attorney's office to pursue criminal charges against her and take her in and seek to put her in jail.
Under FL law, this is going to be a probate court contest and as such the law mandates you have a local probate attorney representing you and your good sister against this woman.
