A Homer, Nebraska woman accused of stealing more than $150,000 from an elderly client has reached a plea deal.
Terry Lockie pleaded guilty Monday in Woodbury County District Court to one count of dependent adult abuse.
A first-degree theft charge has been dismissed.
The plea agreement means a five-year prison sentence has been suspended and the 65-year-old Lockie will be on probation for two years.
Lockie owns an accounting firm in Sioux City.
Court records say Lockie had power of attorney for an elderly woman who was suffering from dementia, and that between 2008 and 2010, Lockie took money from the woman's accounts and put it in her own account.
