The Putnam County Grand Jury indicted former Senior Lifestyles Operator and Co-Owner Stephanie Butler on several charges Wednesday.
An investigation by the TBI led authorities to believe Butler, 44, and 36-year-old Brian Richey, a former nurse practitioner at the facility, were responsible for the financial exploitation of several elderly patients at the facility.
The investigation also revealed both Butler and Richey took prescription drugs from patients for personal use as well.
Butler was booked into the Putnam County Jail Wednesday and is being held on $150,000 bond. She faces multiple charges including 11 counts of financial exploitation, four counts of identity theft, and six counts of money laundering.
Butler also faces one count each of tampering with evidence, conspiracy to commit financial exploitation of an elderly/vulnerable adult, and obtaining controlled substances by fraud.
Richey was booked into the Putnam County Jail Thursday morning and released on $40,000 bond. He faces multiple charges as well, including financial exploitation, conspiracy to commit financial exploitation of an elderly/vulnerable adult, and obtaining controlled substances by fraud.
