Sex Offender in Nursing Home Admittedly Assaulted Fellow Resident on Numerous Occasions

A man discovered sexually assaulting an elderly nursing home resident in August allegedly told a state investigator that he had sexual contact with the woman more than once. The evidence of other sexual assaults surfaced during a court hearing this week to move the 83-year-old suspect from the nursing home into a secure facility.

A visitor to the nursing home witnessed the man touching the woman inappropriately at the nursing home. The alleged victim told authorities, “That man keeps coming into my room and doing things.” The facility was fined $10,000 in connection with the incident.

With four past convictions for sex crimes, several employees at the home have told state inspectors it was obvious to them that the resident posed a risk to other residents and to the children that frequently visit the facility.  After the August incident, the home placed an alarm on the door to the man's room which he shares with another male sex offender.
