A former administrator of the Greenwood Home in Greenbush, Minnesota, has been sentenced to 2 years of probation and 30 days in jail for a Roseau County charge of exploitation of a vulnerable adult.

Authorities say Jane 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.

From May 2008 to August of 2008, authorities say Halvorson stole money from the accounts of the four residents at Greenwood, and also from three residents at the Crestwood Home in Roseau, Minnesota. A financial audit was done after money was discovered missing from the residents' accounts, and the audit discovered more than $3,000 missing from the residents.

Halvorson's sentence says she can not have any contact with the victims, and she has to pay the money she stole back to them. She can serve the 30 days in jail on electronic home monitoring but she must pay to do that.
