The Bryan woman who once operated the Rose Home for the elderly and disabled will stay in jail. 47 year old Rose Rodriguez pleaded guilty Monday to perjury and theft charges, including selling homes that did not belong to her. Brazos County District Attorney-Elect Jarvis Parsons says as part of a plea agreement, she was sentenced to four years for the perjury and theft by deception convictions and nine months for the remaining felony thefts. Parsons says how long Rodriguez stays in prison will be up to the Texas parole board. Once she is released, she is on ten years probation from a four year prison sentence. Among the conditions is paying restitution of $76,050.

The criminal case is in addition to a civil lawsuit where Rodriguez and her husband were found responsible for the death of a patient. The state court of appeals in Waco last week upheld they were negligent, but struck down the original award of $750,000 dollars and ordered the local court to rehear the penalty phase.
