Mason City Woman Pleads Guilty to Exploitation

A North Iowa woman accused of stealing a disabled person’s debit/credit card while working as the person’s caretaker has pleaded guilty in court.

Investigators say 30-year-old Tayla De Register of Mason City used the stolen card to make purchases through ATM cash withdrawals and online transactions totaling over $4,000 between June 5th and September 3rd of last year. 

De Register pled guilty to dependent adult abuse/exploitation over $100 and was given a deferred judgment that orders her to spend a year on supervised probation and pay $2,000 in damages. Court records indicate the conviction will be removed from her record if she successfully completes her probation.
