ALBERT LEA, Minn. — For six assistants at an Albert Lea nursing home, poking, taunting and groping the vulnerable adults in their care was a laughing matter, prosecutors alleged Monday in filing criminal charges against the teens.
Two of the former Good Samaritan Society employees — 19-year-old Brianna Broitzman and 18-year-old Ashton Larson — are charged as adults, while the other four are considered juveniles in the Freeborn County case.
Messages left by The Associated Press for Broitzman and for an attorney representing Larson were not immediately returned Monday.
According to the criminal complaint, the teens laughed earlier this year as they spat in residents' mouths, poked and groped their breasts and genitals and at times taunted them until they screamed.
So just to confirm my prejedices, I googled their names. Never would have guessed they looked like this.
