NY: Former Nursing Home Worker Convicted of Sexually Abusing Patients

A former employee of an upstate nursing home was convicted Tuesday of sexually abusing six residents who had suffered traumatic brain injuries, the New York state Attorney General’s office announced.

Jacky Stanley will face between 8 1/3 and 25 years in prison, according to Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. He was convicted of offenses against all six victims at the Northeast Center for Special Care in Lake Katrine, Ulster County, and all the victims testified at trial, Schneiderman said in a news release.

“Jacky Stanley used his position as a caretaker to commit reprehensible and disturbing acts of abuse. The bravery shown by his victims at trial will help ensure that he will never be able to terrorize vulnerable New Yorkers again,” Schneiderman said in the release.

The nursing home provides care to those who have suffered traumatic brain injuries caused by stroke, car accidents, falls and other incidents. Stanley was responsible for helping new residents get acclimated, and helped manage the social environment and ensure that residents participated in required programs as a “neighborhood counselor,” the release said.

He deserves life in prison for targeting vulnerable people. He'll rot in hell but until then, he should rot in prison.

CNN did a report on this subject and I hope other mainstream media picks up on it. I don't have anyone in a nursing home, but have had older relatives in nursing homes that I visited and they were scared of the other residents.
