Nursing Home Employees Pleaded Guilty to Stealing Over $100,000 from Residents

Two former nursing home employees are scheduled to be sentenced later this summer on charges of conspiracy and exploitation of a vulnerable person. According to reports, the two have been accused of stealing more than $100,000 on nearly 400 occasions. Both employees pleaded guilty last month.

Prosecutors say one of the employees was the business office coordinator for two different nursing homes when she wrote checks from the residents' accounts for personal use. The theft occurred between March 2010 and September 2011.

The administrative employee was indicted on 29 counts of exploitation of a vulnerable person and one count of conspiracy. A second nursing home employee, who worked with the first employee, was also indicted on four counts of exploitation of a vulnerable person and one count of conspiracy. For more, read the story.
