A former Cape Girardeau businessman will be back in Stoddard County Court in September. Keith Monia, who faces felony charges of forgery and financial exploitation of the elderly, is scheduled to have a pretrial conference Sept. 16, with a jury trial to begin Sept. 24 before Judge Robert Mayer. The charges are from Sept. 10, 2010, and June 17, 2011, in Scott County. Over about nine months, Monia allegedly promised to make investments of $120,000 and $100,000 in annuities for a couple but never invested the money. The two counts of financial exploitation of the elderly are Class A felonies, the punishment for which is 10 to 30 years in jail or life imprisonment. The two forgery counts, Class C felonies, carry a maximum seven-year sentence or a maximum fine of $5,000. Monia faces charges in Cape Girardeau County, as well. There, he is charged with six counts of financial exploitation of the elderly, one count of forgery and one count of theft of property or services in the amount of $25,000 or more. Monia’s next appearance in Cape Girardeau County court will be Monday.
