The Forum reports  that 42-year-old Tamera Annette Porter was sentenced on Monday. She pleaded guilty to two counts of felony exploitation of a vulnerable adult.

Court documents say the son's 18-year-old girlfriend has the intellectual capacity of a third-grader. Court records say her family called police to report suspicious activity in her bank account in March.

Investigators say Porter made ATM withdrawals of $500 or more from the victim's account and cashed out gift card purchases in amounts from $180 to $295.

Porter told police her son's girlfriend “just volunteers” to give her money.

Porter is ordered to have no contact with the victim.
