Jane Halvorson, former administrator of the Greenwood Home in Greenbush, MN, pled guilty Monday in Roseau County to a felony charge of exploitation of a vulnerable adult.

According to the criminal complaint, Halvorson, 32, stole money from residents at Prairie Community Services Greenwood Home in Greenbush. Greenwood Home is a group home for people who can not care for themselves. The facility typically only houses about four residents at a time. Halvorson was employed by Prairie Community Services as the administrator of the Greenwood Home and was responsible for monitoring the financial accounts of its residents.

The complaint says that from May 2008 to August of 2008, Halvorson misappropriated money from the accounts of the four residents at Greenwood, and also from three residents at the Crestwood Home in Roseau, MN. The complaint says a financial audit was done after money was discovered missing from the residents' accounts, and the audit discovered $3,139.62 missing from the residents.

All residents are considered vulnerable adults, because they are 18 years or older and reside in an inpatient facility.

Halvorson will be sentenced in June.
