JANESVILLE - A home care worker is sentenced for stealing her patient's prescription medication.
Sarah Rekenthaler was placed on three years probation and 30 days in jail.
Rekenthaler was caught by her patient's son stealing a bag containing 60 Vicodin pills. According to the complaint, the boy saw Rekenthaler suspiciously moving near a recliner chair where the pill bottle was kept in a baggie. The next day, the son was unable to find the pills.
Rekenthaler admitted to investigators she sold the pills to friends because she needed money to pay her rent.
