EURweb–An 85-year-old nursing home patient was the victim of “disgraceful sexual perversion” when a male stripper gyrated in front of her against her will at the suburban West Babylon, N.Y., facility, an attorney for the woman’s family said Tuesday.
The family is reportedly seeking $10 million in damages, and took particular issue over the fact that it was a white male stripper lording over an elderly black woman, reports TMZ.
People.com has the story:
John Ray, the attorney for Bernice Youngblood and her family, displayed a picture of a man in white briefs dancing in front of the woman at East Neck Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in September 2012.
The photo, which Ray said Youngblood’s son found during a visit to his mother, shows the woman putting money into the dancer’s waistband. Ray said Youngblood had been urged to participate and did so against her will. The family has filed suit against the nursing home seeking unspecified damages.
Ray said Youngblood, who herself had worked as a health aide for the elderly, had her dignity taken away when “nursing home employees subjected her to this disgraceful sexual perversion.”
