Man on probation for exploiting the elderly is arrested again in Davie

A man serving 15 years probation for exploiting the elderly found himself back in a Broward jail cell Thursday accused of taking advantage of another elderly man, court records showed.

John Quick, 52, was charged with exploitation of the elderly for stopping a 91-year-old man at a traffic light in Davie and offering to do some car repairs, according to the police report.

Broward Judge John “Jay” Hurley increased Quick’s bond to $26,000 for the new charges and denied bond for the probation violation.

“You’re on probation for 15 years beginning in 2005 for exploiting the elderly,” Hurley said. “And now, it says in April of this year you were at a traffic light in Davie and you allegedly found a victim who was 91-years-old who had infirmities from aging, including [poor] vision and a heart condition.”

Arrest records read in court said Quick offered to do some auto body work on the man’s car. He charged $825 initially but went back a couple of days later for $125 and later charged $165 without completing the work he promised.

“You basically, allegedly, took advantage of this man because of his age,” the judge said.
