If my dad spent my inheritance money, what canI do now?

My Mom passed away 8 1/2 years ago. She had no Will. At the time of her death, she had money in an IRA and a good bit in checking. My brother and I asked our dad to leave our money in the IRA to draw more interest until we were ready for it. We recently went to get it out and our dad had already got it out and spent it.
