Donald Chinn, an employee of an assisted living center, was arrested and charged with one count of raping an 84-year-old resident. He is no stranger to the law, with drug offenses, including drug trafficking, stretching back to at least 1999. Chinn’s next-door neighbor in Shelby, Brad Sammons, said living near the man has been a nightmare. He said he supports people being given second chances, but can’t believe Chinn was allowed to be with vulnerable seniors.
The daughter of the alleged victim alerted the Waterford assisted living facility in Mansfield about the alleged crime and the executive director then called 911. No one at the facility would answer questions about the incident or Chinn’s employment. But a spokesperson later sent a statement saying in part that management is “disappointed and concerned.”
