Brianna Broitzman was sentenced last Friday to 180 days in jail for her part in sexually and physically abusing nursing home residents. Broitzman will serve 60 days immediately. She was taken directly to jail from the courtroom.
Her recommended sentence was doubled by the judge who said he was “appalled by her disregard for humanity.”
Broitzman has the option of petitioning the court to not serve the remaining 120 days. If she must serve the full time her next 60 day sentence will start in May and the remainder will begin in October 2011.
Broitzman will also be on probation for 2 years and serve 8 days of community service. In addition, she must undergo a psychological evaluation, and have no contact with vulnerable adults.
This nursing home abuse case from 2008 involves six young women abusing residents at the Good Samaritan Society in Albert Lea, Minnesota. The subsequent investigation found that the abuse went on for a period of five months.
