Cleveland.com reported that Edward McShaffrey was sentenced to 18 months in prison for sexually abusing a nursing home resident and will be classified as a tier I sex offender. The designation will require him to register with the local sheriff every year for 15 years.
A jury found McShaffrey guilty in December 2016 of gross sexual imposition. The sentence is the maximum allowed for this particular crime. McShaffrey was a licensed practical nurse at Brookdale Montrose Nursing Home. McShaffrey was seen with his mouth on the 69-year-old’s breast, according to a news release from the prosecutor’s office.
