Caregiver Accused of Beating Disabled Lawrence Men

KSAL StaffMay 14, 2016

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – A 20-year-old caregiver faces state charges accusing her of hitting and confining two mentally challenged men in her care.

The Lawrence Journal-World reported Friday that Brooke Tiara Shinn of Topeka was arrested last month and faces felony charges of mistreatment of a dependent adult and aggravated battery, as well as a misdemeanor criminal restraint charge.

Shinn’s been released on $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court May 24.
A lawyer listed online as representing Shinn didn’t immediately return a phone message Friday seeking comment.

A recently released arrest affidavit says Shinn’s accused of hitting the two men and locking them in their rooms for the weekend without food or medication. The affidavit alleges the abuse occurred in January and February of 2015.
