Twenty-three-year-old Michelle Bulger of Cecil and 20-year-old Ashley Schaumberg of Pulaski were sentenced in Brown County Court this month to reduced charges.

Press-Gazette Media  reports both women pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of invasion of privacy through use of a surveillance device and disorderly conduct. Both were given two years probation. Bulger was sentenced additionally to six months in jail and Schaumberg to 30 days in jail.

The defendants worked as caregivers at Brookview Meadows, an assisted-living community in Howard.

An attorney for the facility says both workers were suspended when the allegations surfaced in November 2012, and fired after an internal investigation.
