Legal Commentary: Sexual abuse lawyer Brian Kent discusses the legal options available to nursing home abuse victims and their families in the second section of this story.
A former resident at Glen Falls Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing was arrested in February for allegedly sexually abusing another resident at the nursing home in August 2019.
84-year-old Edward E. Snowball has been indicted on three counts each of first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of an incompetent person. This indictment was filed in Warren County Court.
Snowball has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
The alleged victim is considered physically helpless and thus unable to consent to sexual activity, said police.
According to the charges, there were three incidents that happened on August 25-26 last year. The nursing home staff went to the woman’s room after hearing a commotion.
Investigators questioned Snowball at the home and he allegedly admitted to touching the woman and being aware that she was not consenting to the touching.
Snowball was living in another nursing home in Columbia County at the time of his arrest.
