Woman Pleads Guilty to Stealing from Bank Accounts of Disabled Adults

The former manager of finances of a care facility for disabled adults was sentenced to 10 years of probation and ordered to pay restitution after pleading guilty to the financial exploitation and theft of a vulnerable adult.

The woman pleaded guilty in December to two of the eight crimes she was accused of. She was ordered to pay $45,000 in restitution on last week. The woman allegedly used money from the disabled residents accounts for gambling and personal use.

The woman was responsible for the day-to-day financial management of the facilities and clients. She had access to cash, checkbooks and client accounts, along with the facility bank accounts. The woman's sister, who was the executive director of the facility, reported her to police after she confessed the crimes to her. For more, read the story.
