A plea deal was reached in a sexual nursing home abuse case in California when a former certified nursing assistant pleaded guilty to neglecting a dependent adult under circumstances likely to produce great bodily harm.
The abuser will be sentenced to three years of probation during which time he will not be able to work with the elderly.
The man was originally charged with a lewd act on a dependent adult, felony sexual battery on an institutionalized victim, and misdemeanor abuse of a dependent adult abuse.
The former CNA is also now a registered sex offender for a separate case where he had a sexual relationship with an underage girl. He was serving a two year prison sentence when he was charged with sexual nursing home abuse.
The Senior Deputy District Attorney said a plea deal was in the best interest of the case and victim, calling it a “fair resolution”.
