Ex-nursing home manager gets prison for embezzling $460,000

LANSING (AP) - A nursing home business manager who stole $460,000 from residents of the Oakland County facility has been sentenced to between two years, four months and 20 years in prison.

Forty-four-year-old Tina Binkley of Almont pleaded guilty Jan. 27 to one count of embezzlement from vulnerable adults.

Binkley told an Oakland County circuit judge at Monday's sentencing that she's "very sorry" for what she did and "is not the same person" who committed the crimes.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has said that Binkley agreed to pay $460,000 in restitution to 136 victims. Schuette says that she stole the money between May 2010 and April 2013 as business office manager at Boulevard Health Center in Rochester Hills.
