A former Eutawville resident, Kimberly Ann Hood, also known as Kim Koth, pleaded guilty to one count of exploitation of a vulnerable adult last month.

Hood, 45, of 249 Forest Trail, Isle of Palms, entered her guilty plea before Circuit Judge Ed Dickson.

Dickson sentenced her to five years in prison, suspended to five years of probation.

Hood waived a restitution hearing and Dickson ordered her to pay $84,203 to the estate of an Orangeburg County woman.

Dickson stipulated that Hood’s probation term will end early if she pays restitution and court fees before the term ends.

The S.C. Attorney General’s Office prosecuted the case.

According to her indictment, beginning about December 2016 and continuing to April 2019, Hood used the funds or assets of a resident of a facility who was a vulnerable adult under South Carolina laws.
