A former New Jersey caseworker and a private caretaker have been sentenced to three years in state prison for neglecting three developmentally disabled women.

Both former caseworker Bridget Grimes and sponsor home provider Debra Sloan were sentenced Thursday.

Grimes pleaded guilty to official misconduct, neglect of a disabled person and theft. Sloan pleaded to neglect of a disabled person and theft.

Sloan had a contract to care for the women in her home in Hunterdon County’s Alexandria Township and Grimes’ duties included checking on them. But the state removed the women in 2008 after finding two of them had lost about half their body weight.

Authorities said at the time that one of the women was forced to care for another.

Two of the women have since died.
