Settlement in Sexual Assault Case

Published on May 31st, 2018

PennLive reported the settlement involving Maple Farm Nursing Center and the family of a resident who was sexually assaulted by a fellow resident. The parties agreed to resolve the case for $6.75 million.  A jury had awarded $7.5 million to the family, and the home and its insurance carrier agreed to the lower settlement rather than appealing, said the report.

The suit was filed against the home and Glenn Hershey, who was convicted in 2014 with sexually assaulting the woman in the home in January 2013. He is serving a state prison sentence of 8-20 years.  The lawsuit claimed the home failed to ensure that Hershey, who was a registered sex offender, didn’t come in contact with the woman.
