WSPA reported the conviction and sentencing of Christopher Pilgrim who pleaded guilty last month to first-degree assault and was sentenced to 10 years with credit for 226 days he has already served. Pilgrim was arrested last year for sexually assaulting a dementia patient at Magnolia Manor-Inman, a nursing home owned and operated by the national for-profit chain Fundamental Long Term Care Holdings, LLC (aka Hunt Valley Holdings). Pilgrim will also be required to register as a sex offender, according to court records.
It is unclear how or why the facility allowed Pilgrim access to a vulnerable adult who resided at the nursing home. Magnolia Manor-Inman has a history of violations, poor care, and lawsuits filed against it. We hope they do something to keep the rest of the residents safe and free from harm.
