MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A former Bessemer nursing home worker has pleaded guilty to stealing from the facility’s patient trust fund.

In a statement released Monday, Attorney General Luther Strange says 50-year-old Anita Denise Miller pleaded guilty in Jefferson County court to first-degree theft of property.

Strange says Miller admitted that she stole over $10,000 from the Oak Trace Care and Rehabilitation Center’s resident trust fund and petty cash box for her personal use while she was employed as a social worker there. Miller worked at the nursing home from 2008 until 2014.

The facility’s management discovered the theft during an audit and alerted authorities.

She was sentenced to two years in prison, which was suspended. Miller was placed on three years of probation and ordered to make restitution in the amount of $10,774.
