Nursing Home Abuse Sentences Served 21 Feb 12

Two women convicted of abusing residents at an Albert Lea nursing home have been released after serving 42 days of their 180-day jail sentences. Brianna Broitzman and Ashton Larson were each sentenced to three separate 60-day stints. But they were allowed the opportunity to petition the court after the first 60-day term to have the other two waived. Freeborn County jail records show that the two were each released after serving 42 days of their first term. Larson and Broitzman were accused of sexually and psychologically humiliating residents of the Good Samaritan Society. Before sentencing, a tearful Broitzman had said she was “forever sorry” for what she did. Larson apologized to victims’ families and said her actions were “extremely harmful and dumb.”
