— A northern Iowa woman has been given probation for leaving more than a dozen residents alone at an assisted living center.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1mPH0BK ) 54-year-old Debra Jean Ihrig, of Rudd, was recently given deferred judgment and probation on charges of neglect or abandonment of a dependent person, among other charges.

She pleaded guilty to some charges in May as part of a plea deal. She received various sentences, including jail time that was suspended.

Ihrig was arrested in April, after she was accused of leaving 15 residents alone at Country Meadow Place Assisted Living. She was the only person on duty during the early hours shift.
