A former social worker at a state mental health facility in Illinois allegedly committed sexual misconduct with at least three patients, including one who said she made him her “sex slave” for three years, officials said.
Christy L. Lenhardt, 52, was arrested last week and charged with 14 felonies: Eight counts of sexual misconduct with a person with disabilities and six counts of official misconduct. She faces up to five years in prison if convicted of the criminal charges, according to WGN9 News, while civil lawsuits seek $10,000 in damages each.
Some of the charges stem from a lawsuit filed last year by an Elgin Mental Health Center patient named Benahdam Hurt, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Hurt said Lenhardt used him as a “sex slave,” forcing him into sexual encounters in her office or his bedroom and punishing him if he pushed back.
“I visit my son every day every weekend and I knew

On Wednesday, a man from Illinois was convicted of sexually assaulting a 90-year-old with dementia. Dontrell Netter, 24, now faces up to six decades behind bars for the 2015 incident.
According to Fox News, the victim was a care home patient. Shockingly, a certified nurse at the home invited Netter, and two other men, to assault her. That nurse has been identified as Channing Butler. He and the other men have pleaded guilty to various charges related to the disturbing incident, and are now serving prison sentences. Butler was given 14 years behind bars.
Netter has denied assaulting the patient. Instead, during his trial, he claimed he was tricked into visiting the home, the Champaign News-Gazette reports. But the jury didn’t buy it and instead found him guilty. Netter will be sentenced in January.
Butler had photographs of a man sexually assaulting the woman. He admitted to taking the photograph,

A man described as a “classic serial killer” escaped from a state psychiatric hospital outside of Honolulu, Hawaii on Sunday and reportedly flew to California.
Randall Saito, 59, was acquitted of a 1979 murder by reason of insanity, according to Time. He shot and repeatedly stabbed Sandra Yamashiro, a victim he reportedly picked at random, at a shopping mall in Honolulu. His attorneys tried to get Saito released in 2000, but prosecutors argued that Saito fit the profile of a “classic serial killer.”
In 1993, a court denied Saito’s request for conditional release, arguing that the man suffered from sexual sadism and necrophilia just as he did when he was committed 12 years earlier, according to local reports.
Saito has reportedly flown to California using an alias, and it is unclear if he remains in the state. The FBI and US Marshals have joined in a massive manhunt to find

Shocking camera footage shows an elderly man who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease being beaten by a care worker at a Canadian nursing home. The family of 89-year-old Georges Karam installed the surveillance cameras in his room at Ottawa’s Gary J. Armstrong Long Term Care Home after noticing several unexplained injuries to their loved one. Police arrested personal care worker Jie Xiao in connection with the incident and charged him with assault.
“In the fall of 2016 and early 2017, my grandfather kept suffering from bruises, cuts and lesions — mostly to his face,” Karam’s grandson Daniel Nassrallah told CBC Radio-Canada. “Sometimes the home would have answers saying he fell out of bed, [but] my grandfather is immobile, so we didn’t necessarily believe [that].” With the approval of the Armstrong Home’s management and the knowledge of staff, the family installed the camera, which Nassrallah said was “extremely visible.”
Karam suffers from
