Brentwood Place Resident Reports Sexual Assault by Fellow Resident

A registered sex offender living at Brentwood Place One in Dallas has been charged with sexually assaulting another resident. 59-year-old Olander Grant has been charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault.

Officers responded to Brentwood Place on the 3500 block of South Buckner Boulevard on Sunday, November 10. The accuser told a police officer that she was in a hallway at the facility at around 2:30 a.m. when Grant motioned for her to enter his room.

The woman, who has an intellectual disability and bipolar disorder, reportedly entered the room. Grant then allegedly sexually assaulted her several times, according to the affidavit. She told the police that she yelled for help and Olander told her to stay quiet.

The woman was unable to leave the room due to the door being locked. At 10:30 a.m., eight hours after the alleged assault began, she left the room and reported the assault to a nurse.

According to court records, Grant was convicted of rape in 1982 and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. After being released on parole, he was required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. He also has convictions for drug possession and burglary dating back to the early 2000s.

Justice For Nursing Home Sexual Assault Victims and Their Families

Attorney Marc Lenahan serves victims as a civil attorney and has offered to share some of his thoughts on the legal rights of nursing home sexual assault victims and their families:

The safety of residents must be the top priority of all nursing homes. The families of these residents trust that nursing homes will make sure their loved ones get the proper care they need and that they will be protected from preventable dangers - including sexual assault by other residents, employees, visitors, and intruders.

When one nursing home resident is sexually assaulted by another, it's important to ask whether the assault was preventable. In some cases, nursing home negligence is partially to blame for allowing a sexual assault to occur at the facility. For example, a nursing home could be considered negligent if inadequate security opened the door for a sexual assault to occur. In cases of negligence, the victim and their family may have grounds for a lawsuit.
