by Levin & Perconti

A 52-year-old man who worked at a nursing home has been charged with sexually abusing a 78-year-old patient. The man is formally charged with felony sex abuse, misdemeanor third-degree sex abuse for the incidents, alleged to have place at the center for approximately a month. He is already facing sex abuse charges from his employment at another area nursing home. The man is accused of sexually abusing a physically helpless female patient by touching her breasts and vaginal areas in the evening hours. The man was already facing third-degree sex abuse charges based on an incident alleged to have taken place between August and September 2008. In that case this man allegedly French-kissed a younger female wheelchair-bound patient with multiple sclerosis. Too often those with criminal backgrounds become employed in nursing homes, even here in Chicago, Illinois. To read more about the sexual abuse, please click here.
