A caregiver at a Clinton County adult foster home faces more than a decade in prison for vulnerable adult abuse. The Department of Attorney General’s Health Care Fraud Division and the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office investigated the abuse. A vulnerable adult at the adult foster care home suffered major injuries. The injuries included a subdural hematoma, fractured sternum, and numerous bruises and marks. The victim survived after admission to the intensive care unit.
Andrew House-Carter was the lone caregiver at the home – known as the Airport Home – for the night shift spanning May 15th and 16th.
Andrew House-Carter is charged with first-degree vulnerable adult abuse, a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
Why was he the sole caregiver? Where was the rest of the staff?
