ROCHESTER, Minn. – Robbing a woman’s home while she was in the hospital giving birth results in probation for a Rochester duo.

Jessi Fern Adams, 36, and Jason Ashley Richards, 35, were arrested in March after the woman returned home from the hospital and called police. Authorities say video cameras at the home caught Adams, a neighbor, and Richards using a spare key to get inside.
