SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) -- A nightshift nurse is in jail accused of sexually abusing at least two dozen elderly or disabled patients at an Ohio nursing home.
Police say suspect John Riems (reemz) recalls abusing nearly 100 patients during a 20-year career but that he could remember specific information on only 24.
The police chief of Perkins Township says many of the victims at Concord Care and Rehabilitation Center were unable to report the abuse, and some have since died.
The suspect has entered a plea of not guilty.
