BURLINGTON, WI (WTAQ) - The operator of a group home in Burlington will spend three years in prison for stealing over $24,000 from three mentally disabled residents.

58-year-old Becky Ann Borucki was also told to spend 3 years under extended supervision when she leaves prison – plus 3 years’ probation.

A hearing will be held November 21st to determine how much Borucki will have to pay back.

One of the men’s legal guardians contacted police after noticing that almost $9,000 disappeared from the man’s bank account from August of 2011 to January of last year. She reportedly used the money to buy items that included electronics, clothes, and rugs.

Her attorney said Borucki had mental illnesses at the time. She was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and possible schizophrenia.

Borucki apologized during her sentencing. She said the thefts were completely out of character, after a 30 year career of caring for people with special needs.

She pleaded no contest in March to two theft charges and a count of identity theft.
