(WIBW) - A former social worker will serve three years probation for harassing a Fort Riley soldier.
44-year old Rachelle Santiago of Manhattan also agreed to surrender her social work license at sentencing Monday, as well as agreeing to not reapply for a license in Kansas or any other state.
Santiago pleaded guilty to one count of fleeing from a police officer, one count of criminal restraint, one count of making a criminal threat and one count of unlawfully entering military property. In her plea, Santiago admitted to making a sexual advance toward a client in January 2011, then sending him threatening messages.
She also admits to leading military authorities on a chase through Fort Riley at speeds topping 100 miles an hour.
Santiago was working as a contract employee at the Irwin Army Community Hospital on Fort Riley when the incidents occurred. She initially had filed documents saying she intended to claim mental illness before entering her guilty plea.
