Woman Gets Probation for Financial Exploitation

A Rochester woman accused of spending more than $17,000 of another woman's money was sentenced Monday to 10 years probation.

Theresa Anne Kuhn, 49, pleaded guilty Oct. 10 to felony financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult; in exchange, an identical count of financial exploitation and one count of felony financial transaction card fraud were dismissed.

In addition to the probation, Olmsted County District Court Judge Debra Jacobson ordered Kuhn to pay restitution and undergo a mental health screening, among other conditions.

Investigators were assigned to the case after a social worker alerted Rochester police to the transactions allegedly made by Kuhn, who had power of attorney for the 76-year-old woman.

I think jail time was appropriate, but I'm glad to see the restitution and the testing.

I think she should have gotten some jail time too.
