ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A woman employed at an upstate residence for disabled New Yorkers has pleaded guilty to endangering a client whose leg was broken during transport.
State authorities say 21-year-old Sabrina Allen is expected to face five years’ probation at sentencing July 7 in Saratoga County Court. Allen worked for AIM Services Inc.
The Justice Center says Allen admitted she disregarded the client’s warning that his wheelchair wasn’t properly secured in a van. When he was thrown from the chair, she admits she ignored his demand to call 911, leaving him on the floor in pain for 10 to 20 minutes before staff at his residence called for medical help.
The Justice Center investigated and prosecuted the case. AIM Services is certified by the state Office for People With Developmental Disabilities.
