LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel today announced the sentencing of Beth Lisa Jaslove, 69, of Birmingham, after she stole more than $1 million from her therapy patients through a scheme called Community Money Program.
Jaslove pleaded guilty to one count of larceny by false pretenses of more than $100,000. She was sentenced to five years supervised probation and ordered to pay $100,000 in restitution. She appeared Jan. 9 before Judge Phyllis McMillan in Oakland County Circuit Court.
As part of her sentencing, Jaslove is not to be employed as a therapist, counselor or spiritual guide for individuals or groups during the term of her probation.

"Ms. Jaslove took advantage of her clients for far too long and preyed on vulnerable Michiganders simply striving to improve their well-being," Nessel said. "My office will continue to hold those who steal from others accountable for their actions."
Jaslove stole money from patients between 1991 and 2017. In the period between 2008 and 2016 alone, she obtained more than $1 million from the victims. More than a dozen people nearly lost the total of their investment in the Community Money Program.
Through the program and her business, the Center for Growth and Enlightenment, Jaslove took money from her patients under the false pretense that it would be used to help others in need. She also promoted the scheme by telling her patients and clients that investing in the program would help their personal growth and enlightenment.
