Two women convicted of sexual and physical nursing home abuse as teenagers will have the last part of their jail sentence waived provided they meet with family members of the victims.
The two women were both sentenced to 180 days in jail for the abuse of elderly residents, some with Alzheimer’s disease, at Good Samaritan Nursing Home in Albert Lea, Minnesota. They were allowed to serve the jail term in 60 day increments, but only actually served the first 60 days, with the second and third 60 days waived by a judge.
The abuse involved the two women, teenagers at the the time, spitting on, taunting, and pinching the breasts of residents.
