An Arkansas woman accused of taking money from nursing home residents pleaded guilty to six counts of exploitation, according to a news release from the office of Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.

The plea came after Beverly Ann Brooks transferred funds out of nursing home residents’ trust accounts, misappropriating funds at six long-term care facilities in 2014, Rutledge said in the release.

The Benton resident will serve one year of probation and is required to pay Regional Health Properties more than $1,500 in restitution. Before her guilty plea, she had already paid the company $3,600.

“Beverly Brooks took advantage of some of Arkansas’s most vulnerable residents,” Rutledge said in the release. “It remains a top priority of my office to stop this type of fraud.”

    I wish it was a top priority for rutledges office to clean up the devastation left behind when arkansas cps rums amok. I was falsely accused by an 'anonymous' person with a vendetta (i have proof), the wacko cps investigator wrote a bizarre report with wild accusations, the lazy supervisor signed off on it, and it took nearly a year to get to the admin appeals court to get it overturned. Bby that time cps had wasted $5000 forcing us into a state paid therapy program we did not need, forced us to visit the cps office every month, searched our home whenever they felt like it, and threatened my innocent 14yr old son with jail if he did not answer her questions. How can we get washngton co worker stephanie graham to answer for violating our constitutional rights? Why didn't benton co judge thomas e smith allow u to defend ourselves when we were in his court. Like herod, he avoided his job to pass us off to the admin court. It took months for the admin judge to let us know the cps decision was overturned. Clean up cps. No more money for stealing children to fund unnecessary foster care. Rep Shaefer was right. Cps is rotten to the core.

    1 year probation? Yes it certainly sounds like a top priority.
