Rudd woman to be sentenced in abandonment case

Sentencing for a Rudd woman accused of abandoning assisted living center residents has been set for July after she pleaded guilty to several charges in the case.

Court records show that 54-year-old Debra Jean Ihrig pleaded guilty Wednesday in Cerro Gordo County District Court to three counts: neglect or abandonment of a dependent person, wanton neglect of a dependent adult and third-degree theft.

In exchange for her plea, 13 other counts were dropped.

Authorities say Ihrig left 15 residents alone on April 5 at County Meadow Place Assisted Living.  She was the only staff person on duty during those hours.

Her sentencing is set for July 7.
