A 27-year-old northeast Baltimore woman has been convicted of two counts of battery involving two elderly and disabled patients in a Catonsville nursing home.
Baltimore County Circuit Court Judge Joseph F. Murphy yesterday gave Jewel Lynne Miller, of the 3000 block of Tennessee Ave., an 18-month suspended sentence and placed her on three years of supervised probation.
As a condition of her probation, Miller must undergo therapy, said Assistant Maryland Attorney General Timothy X. Sokas.
Miller entered an Alford plea before Judge Murphy.
An Alford plea is not an outright admission of guilt but an acknowledgment by the defense that the evidence is overwhelming and likely would result in a conviction if the case went to trial.
