Evers Pleads Guilty to Taking Funds from Edmond Nursing Home Residents
A former administrator at an Edmond nursing home pleaded guilty yesterday to taking more than $3,000 from residents in her care, Attorney General Drew Edmondson said.
Susan Gail Evers, 55, was charged in June with one count of caretaker exploitation for illegally taking money from the trust fund accounts of residents at Edmond’s Grace Living Center. She was sentenced Thursday in Oklahoma County District Court to a two-year deferred sentence and ordered to pay a $500 fine, $100 victim compensation assessment and court costs.
Evers admitted to investigators that she took the money from resident’s trust fund accounts and gambled the funds. She has already paid full restitution of $3,090.65.
