MOTT, N.D. (AP) — A Richardton man has pleaded guilty to exploiting his vulnerable wife and been sentenced to probation and restitution.

Forty-seven-year-old Greg Goetz (GETZ) will have to repay $60,000 and spend five years on supervised probation to avoid prison and fines.

The Dickinson Press says Goetz was appointed as conservator for his estranged wife and was put in charge of about $270,000 of her money when she was deemed unfit to manage finances. Goetz was accused of misusing the money.

Hettinger County State's Attorney James Gion says the victim approved the plea agreement but requested a no-contact order be added.
