A former Department of Human Services employee pleaded guilty Monday to two Tulsa County felony charges of financially exploiting vulnerable adults.

Debra Roberts, 51, is to be sentenced Dec. 21.

She waived her right to a trial, and she has no agreement with prosecutors to govern her punishment. Associate District Judge Dana Kuehn withheld any finding of guilt.

Roberts remains free on bail while she awaits sentencing in two cases filed in 2008.

Roberts, of Chelsea, was a DHS Adult Protective Services specialist.

She was charged in one case with taking nearly $4,500 that belonged to an 84-year-old man.

November 2008 after an internal

investigation.
