30 days to 24 months in prison plus costs and a $500 fine is the sentence for one elder abuse defendant in Pennsylvania. Diana Frye plead guilty to neglect of a care-dependent person while she was employed at Warner’s Home for the Aged.
Investigators said that Frye allowed an 80-year-old man to sit in his urine and feces through the night. The senior then developed wounds on his buttocks, hips, and lower legs.
Sherry Jo Warner, the owner of Warner’s Home for the Age, was also implicated in the crime and had already been sentenced to three months to two years in prison.
