More Abuse in Genesee County Michigan

Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell is calling it another case of elder abuse as three adults have been removed from a home in Flint.

The sheriff says those people are being treated at an area hospital. This all took place in the 3800 Block of Fleming on the city's north side.

One person was taken into custody. He's being held in the Genesee County Jail.

He's 23-years-old, according to Pickell, and the grandson of Mary Chapman, a woman who is no stranger to these types of allegations.

The man arrested is likely also the son of the Chapman's daughter, who was running a Beard Street facility where one elderly woman died and two other elderly adults were removed last month.

Pickell says they will seek elder abuse related charges against him. The sheriff and his team of investigators say the home is not licensed to be an adult foster care facility.

The three women inside, ages 55, 58 and 67, are receiving treatment, according to the sheriff.

Maximum punishment will not be sufficient for these folks abusing, neglecting and exploiting the elderly.
