Hawley announces sentencing of woman accused of financially abusing Medicaid patient

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley announced on Tuesday that Kirsti Metcalf, 41, has been sentenced to 10 years after pleading guilty to receiving stolen property and abuse of a health care recipient.

Metcalf was sentenced to 10 years for receiving stolen property and seven years for financial abuse of a Medicaid patient. She will serve those sentences concurrently for ten years.

Hawley said Metcalf must pay $44,561 in restitution to her victims and $15,370.63 for the state’s prosecution costs.

Metcalf was employed in the business office of a Carthage, Missouri, nursing home from 2010 through 2012. She was responsible for accounts that held resident funds in trusts.

Metcalf pleaded guilty to systematically retaining $44,561 in resident funds for her own purposes without the residents’ or their families’ consent.

“Criminal actions like those of Kirsti Metcalf will not be tolerated in Missouri,” Hawley said. “Let this conviction signify to anyone trying to take advantage of our most valuable citizens that this behavior will not stand. Our office is firm in its commitment to protect all Missourians.”
