Frankfort Caregivers Charged with Sexual Abuse of Intellectually Disabled

Published on Jun 11, 2015 at 3:22 pm in Nursing Home Abuse.

Four caregivers have been indicted for their role in a sex abuse scandal at Community Choices Unlimited. Attorney General Jack Conway and his Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Unit announced the indictment after the foursome failed to report the abuse allegedly committed by Damon Heath. As a result of their negligence, Heath was able to continue his abuse of Community Choices residents.

Heath, of Frankfort, Kentucky, was arrested and indicted in February and charged with five counts of third-degree sodomy and four counts of first-degree sexual abuse. Heath was a cargiver at Community Choices Unlimited. He has allegedly admitted engaging in sexual conduct with two victims several times for nearly two years from April 2013 through January 2015. Court documents revealed the abuse occurred nine times, but none of those were at Community Choices Unlimited, but rather off-site on field trips with Heath and the men. Four other employees were charged with misdemeanor counts that they failed to notify superiors of what was going on, and felony counts of Wanton Neglect. The employees involved are:

Louis Dewayne Milligan (43)

Randy Ricardo Driver (32)

Tammy D. Humphrey (55)

Toshia J. Redding (40)

Attorney General Conway said, “My investigators moved swiftly to investigate these abuse allegations immediately after receiving the complaint. These heinous crimes committed against helpless victims require additional responsibility by facility caregivers to report allegations. Caregivers cannot simply turn a blind eye to known abuse or neglect and those that fail to report abuse and neglect will be prosecuted. As always, I encourage anyone who suspects patient neglect or abuse in a nursing home, Medicaid facility, or personal care home to report it to my office.”

Community Choices Unlimited manages a group of Frankfort-area facilities that cares for intellectually disabled adults. They have offered a variety of services in the county for the past 12 years. These defendants will stand trial over the course of the next few months.
