Twin Falls Caregiver Acquitted of Beating Patient

Comstock

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A 62-year-old Twin Falls caregiver accused of hitting a dementia patient in the head with a pipe has been found not guilty.

The Times-News reports that jurors deliberated about three hours Wednesday before acquitting Jordana Brenda Bryan of aggravated battery in 5th District Court. Prosecutors contended that Bryan in late January struck the man at a southern Idaho assisted living home she ran at the time.

But during the trial, defense attorney Keith Roark argued Bryan wasn’t even present at the time prosecutors say the assault occurred. Bryan’s business partner, Walter McCabe, testified that he saw the man bump his head on Jan. 21 after bending down to look for something under a trailer. State officials on Feb. 1 suspended Bryan’s certificate to run the assisted living home.
