Embezzlement

The Tennessean had an article about the arrest of Regina Jacobs.  The nursing home employee is charged with stealing more than $400,000 from the nursing home where she
worked for more than 10 years. I wonder how long it was going on?  How could she be so greedy?

Officers with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested her after she was indicted by the Wilson County grand jury on three counts of theft over $60,000, two counts of theft over $10,000 and one count of theft over $1,000.

In December 2008, the nursing home, Quality Care Health Center, finally discovered that Jacobs, a business office manager, had been cashing checks intended to cover patient costs and keeping the money.  An internal investigation and audit at the nursing home revealed that about 70 patients' accounts had been affected.

 

BOM at Magnolia Manor Sentenced

The Herald Online ran an article on the guilty plea and sentencing of Melissa Rice Kelly for misusing the residents' money.  Kelly was the business office manager at Magnolia Manor in Rock Hill, S.C; this facility is one of the many facilities owned and operated by Murray Forman's Fundamental family of companies.  

Kelly only recieved probation instead of the 70 years she could have faced on the 13 felonies she admitted to in court. Kelly pleaded guilty to 12 counts of exploitation of a vulnerable adult and one count of breach of trust with fraud intent.
