December 18, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A former nursing assistant at a Chestertown nursing home has been indicted on charges of physically and sexually abusing a vulnerable adult at the home, Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. announced yesterday.

Gene Patrick Carpenter, 29, a former certified nursing assistant at the Magnolia Hall Nursing Center, is charged with two counts of intentional abuse and neglect of a vulnerable adult and sexually abusing an 84-year-old resident on Nov. 6 and Nov. 7, Curran said.

He said Carpenter was indicted by a Kent County grand jury on Tuesday after two witnesses said they saw him fondle the woman.
