Diane Kay Lott is charged with 10 counts of fourth degree Vulnerable Adult Abuse.

Ten residents at two mid-Michigan adult foster care homes have been relocated and the homes' operator has been charged after authorities said they were not receiving proper care.

The Lansing State Journal reports that 58-year-old Diane Kay Lott of Owosso was arraigned Wednesday on 10 counts of misdemeanor vulnerable adult abuse. Lott entered a not-guilty plea and was released on bond. A pretrial conference is scheduled for Tuesday.

The Michigan Attorney General's office says investigators, acting on a complaint from another state agency, made unannounced visits to the homes and learned three part-time employees didn't have CPR or first aid certification. A medication provider certificate also had expired.

The Associated Press was unable to find a telephone number Thursday to reach Lott for comment.
