Nursing Home Administrator Steals $300,000 to Buy Himself New Vehicles

The former administrator of a personal care home which has been shut down admitted that he stole $300,000 from disabled residents and used the money to buy personal items including personal vehicles.  The former administrator pleaded guilty this week in Circuit Court to theft, exploitation and tax-evasion charges.

The personal care home was shut down by this fall because state authorities and the attorney general's office had ongoing concerns about the non-profit's financial health and poor living conditions. A statement from teh attorney general's office said the man, while administrator, stole more than $300,000 and used the money to buy a GMC Hummer, a Chevrolet Silverado, a Ford F-150 and a Suzuki XL-7.

Meanwhile, the care at the facility was going downhill. State inspections found expired medicines, the building needing repairs and no milk for residents because the food bill had not been paid. The former administrator faces up to 10 years in prison on the state charges and has already agreed to a two year sentence for the federal charges. For more, read the story.
