Update: Edmond man charged with exploiting his disabled friend

UPDATE 9/8/16 - We have new details tonight involving an Oklahoma disabled man badly injured in a bicycle accident last year.

John Hayes received a large insurance settlement, money that was supposed to help John with living expenses and his retirement.

Prosecutors say that money is gone now!

They’ve charged Ronnie Taylor with the crime.

It’s alleged he used bogus catering business to steal tens of thousands of dollars from John Hayes.

For months Taylor's been ducking us and our questions.

Investigators say they have proof large wads of cash were withdrawn from John's account dozens of times over a short period.

Taylor says he has no idea what happened to John’s cash.

“Absolutely I gave him rides everywhere, [the] grocery store, karate, back and forth everywhere,” Taylor said. “We went to the bank a good amount. He'd give me twenty bucks for gas money every now and then.”

Taylor says he and John only briefly discussed going into business together, but nothing more.

“Straight up I never got any money from John,” he said. “I didn't get any big sums of money from John. John was my friend. I would never take advantage.”

Thursday Taylor’s hearing was delayed again because he showed up to court without an attorney claiming he didn't know how the legal process worked.

We'll keep you posted on the case.
