A sentence has been issued in the case of an Ainsworth caregiver involved in the death of a 79 year-old woman.  District Court Judge Joel Yates has issued a 17 year sentence to Rodney Bean on seven counts about 2:00 Thursday afternoon in the Washington County Courthouse.

Bean was convicted in September of one count of involuntary manslaughter, two counts of theft in the second degree, one count of neglect and abandonment of a dependent person, and three counts of dependent adult abuse.

Lori Jo Bean was sentenced to five years of probation in February in the death of Joye Gentzler in 2006.
