Assault on 84 Year Old Man Leads to One Year Imprisonment For Nursing Home Caregiver

A caregiver will spend one year in prison for hitting an 84-year-old man in the head. A local judge ruled it a second-degree assault and after sentencing the man to one year in prison, prohibited the man from serving as a caregiver for the elderly. The mother of a resident at the home observed the assault taking place and reported it. 

The person involved in the case had this to say about it, “Caregivers who abuse the residents they are supposed to protect and watch over violate the public’s trust in them. We’re thankful that an eyewitness reported this incident, leading to a conviction that will prevent the defendant from mistreating any more vulnerable adults.” For more, read the story.
