Andrea Beth Quigg, 36, of Muskegon will also serve 18 months of probation for the crime.

Quigg lost her job with Ottawa County last fall when the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department started an investigation into complaints of financial improprieties by the client’s family.Quigg told police that she gave the victim cash and he signed the checks to her.

After further investigation, she admitted to having the victim sign blank checks, and then writing them out to herself in amounts from $150-$250, said Sheriff’s Capt. Mark Bennett at the earlier hearing.

What a despicable person.

Must have got a good lawyer with the money she stole. What a slap on the hand and an insult to all the good, honest social workers helping people every day. I am totally disgusted....

Not good example for the crime committed, someone stole that much money from me, guaranteed he will spend sometime behind bars,
