Patient abuser gets one-year probation



Published: Fri, September 6, 2013 @ 6:37 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — An Alameda Avenue man was sentenced to a one-year probation after pleading guilty to one count of patient abuse and relinquishing his state-tested nurse aide certification.

Timothy P. Harrell, 28, drew the sentence today from Judge John M. Durkin of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court, who told Harrell he is barred from working with elderly or disabled people in any capacity.

Harrell was initially indicted on four counts each of rape and sexual battery, two counts of gross sexual imposition and one count of patient abuse.

The rape and sexual-battery charges and one gross sexual imposition count pertain to Harrell’s alleged conduct in September 2011 with a female Valley Renaissance nursing home resident, who has since died.

One gross sexual imposition count and the patient-abuse charge in the April 2012 indictment pertained to Harrell’s earlier alleged conduct with a disabled resident at a Gateways to Better Living group home between Dec. 1, 2010, and Jan. 3, 2011.

The prosecution dropped all but the patient-abuse charge in the plea agreement, which says both victims are to be included in the patient-abuse count, to which Harrell pleaded guilty.

The case was investigated by the Ohio Department of Health.

WTF? This is lighter than a slap on the wrist. At least a slap on the wrist could have left a mark. This sentence is ... nothing. Name the prosecutors involved. The guy is at least fondling and maybe raping disabled people and he gets ... nothing? WTF?

It is bad enough for what this sleazeball did,but for the so called judge who sentenced him WTF ?? Being lenient is one thing but this sentence is ridiculous. Maybe the judge wanted the mans vote in the next election or likes to abuse old people to!!
