LAS VEGAS (AP) - The former manager of a Las Vegas care home has been sentenced to nine months in jail after prosecutors say she mistreated seniors.

The Nevada Attorney General's office announced Wednesday that 49-year-old Mary Jennifer Agsalud was also ordered to perform community service, serve two years of probation and pay $6,000 in fines and restitution.

Investigators say Agsalud had been caring for residents at the Las Vegas Home Sweet Home group home even though she wasn't qualified to do so.

Officials say she moved one resident into an unlicensed personal residence and refused to provide the man with his wheelchair, leaving him stranded in his bed for about two weeks in the summer of 2011.

Agsalud pleaded guilty to a charge of neglecting a vulnerable person.
