Another nursing home employee caught molesting residents

Published on September 4th, 2008

Deseret News had an article about the sentencing of a nursing home employee who molested an 85 year old resident where he was employed.  This is a tragic and preventable situation. Why didn’t anyone supervise this CNA?  How could they have hired this guy?  Why did they allow him to plea to a lesser crime? How could they give him such a light sentence?

Jacob Mut Bolith was charged in July 2007 with first-degree felony rape, second-degree felony forcible sex abuse and class A misdemeanor lewdness. However, in a plea agreement, he pleaded guilty to forcible sex abuse, a second-degree felony, and the other two charges were dropped.  He was only sentenced to serve a one-to-15-year sentence and ordered him to pay restitution.

"To do this to my mother … is unconscionable," one daughter said. Her other daughter said a medical exam showed that the defendant did more than "what he admitted."

The article doesn’t mention if the facility knew or should have known about their employee’s tendencies or if they did a background check or if they recieved prior complaints about his behavior or if the State even investigated the nursing home.
