TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A nursing home official has been sentenced to five years in prison for concealing from her personal bankruptcy filings a $100,000 gift she received from a deceased patient’s estate.

State authorities say 58-year-old Deborah Campbell, of Williamstown, also had her nursing license suspended for three years

While serving as director of nursing at a facility in Cape May, Williams learned of the patient’s gift in September 2011. She eventually received two after-tax installments of $42,500 each.

Campbell filed for bankruptcy in March 2012, a day after the second gift check was dated. She didn’t mention the gift in her filing and concealed other assets.

Williams claimed $96,000 in debt in her filing. She eventually received a final bankruptcy ruling in August 2012, relieving her of more than $75,000 in debt.
