Seattle Nursing Home Settles $8 Million Lawsuit in Sexual Assault Case

This is an update of a post I wrote in the summer of 2019.

Nursing Assistant Arrested for Raping Disabled Woman in Care Facility

At the time, I could not find a photo of the alleged rapist, but thanks to the woman’s brother who set up a hidden camera in her room we now have this photo:

The quote is from the victim.

 

First watch the news report at Seattle’s KIRO7 shortly after the arrest of Nshimiyiana Hamzat who I suspect is Nigerian.

You will see (hear from their accent) that the white victim and her brother are immigrants themselves perhaps from Eastern Europe.

‘They must change’: Seattle woman, brother speak after hidden camera nursing home rape arrest

 

SEATTLE — KIRO 7 first told you earlier this month that prosecutors had charged 29-year-old nursing assistant, Nshimiyiana Hamzat, with second-degree rape after they said he was captured on hidden camera repeatedly raping a disabled patient in his care at Foss Home and Village in North Seattle.

Hamzat is currently booked in the King County Jail.

Charging papers say the hidden camera was disguised as a phone charger and placed in the room at Foss Home and Village nursing home, unbeknownst to the victim by her brother, who she had told about the alleged sexual abuse after initially suffering in silence.

That woman and her brother, whose identities we’re concealing given the allegations, are now sharing their stories for the first time with KIRO 7 in hopes of creating change at the nursing home that KIRO 7 recently learned is tied to another Seattle police investigation involving the reported sexual assault of a 93-year-old woman.

They also shared screenshots of the video they said was turned over to Seattle police that led to the rape charges.

“I asked him, what are you doing to me? He said back to me, ‘I’m trying to help you, I’m trying to clean you’,” said the victim in an interview with KIRO 7. “It was really terrible.”

 

Watch the news clip to see the camera (you might need one someday!) used by the victim’s brother who said it made him sick to see what it recorded.

The video shows she was raped twice a day on two different days.

Here is the latest news from last week. It is an Associated Press story they condensed from the Seattle Times.  The AP story might actually be distributed widely throughout the country.

Seattle Nursing Home to Pay $8M in Sexual Assault Lawsuit

SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle nursing home’s insurer has agreed to pay $8 million to settle a lawsuit brought on behalf of a disabled woman who was sexually assaulted while in the facility’s care.

Foss Home and Village agreed to settle the 2019 lawsuit claiming the facility was negligent in its hiring and its failure to have a system in place that ensured the plaintiff’s care was “monitored and properly supervised.”

The lawsuit was filed after the woman, who is in her 50s with multiple sclerosis, told relatives about the abuse. One relative placed a hidden camera in her room, the Seattle Times reported.

The video captured the woman being repeatedly raped by a male employee, according to King County prosecutors who charged Nshimiyiana Hamzat with rape and indecent liberties two years ago.

Hamzat remains in jail awaiting trial.

More here.

See also the Seattle Times story where the victim’s attorney is quoted:

Seattle nursing home settles lawsuit for $8 million after worker allegedly raped woman repeatedly

“They had one male staffer cleaning the genitalia of disabled females,” said plaintiff’s attorney Darrell L. Cochran who worked on the case with attorney Kevin Hastings. “That’s a terribly dangerous practice.”  [There should be a law in fact, that vulnerable women are only cared for by other women!-ed]

And, a warning to all:

Cochran said that while the $8 million settlement got Foss’ attention, “everyone should be on the alert for their elderly family and friends because sometimes assistant living homes have good policies but really bad practices.”

This is not the only case of rape allegations in care facilities we have reported.

See a similar case in Minnesota just last month where a son set up a surveillance camera because he feared Mom was being abused.

Minnesota (again!): Nursing Home Aide Arrested on Charges He Raped Dementia Patient

 

One of the supposed benefits of mass migration that the Left is pushing is their bright idea that they will train more immigrants to care for America’s elderly.  I shudder at the thought.

See my tag ‘Elder Abuse’ for more dreadful cases.

 

Editor’s note:  Please consider reading my posts at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ on a computer screen once in awhile instead of on your phone, or simply in an e-mail!

Why?  Because I spend a lot of time laying out posts with photos etc. and they look so jumbled, with photo captions separated, when condensed in an e-mail or on a phone.

Additionally it helps my numbers (hits!) look better!

New American from Kenya Sentenced in Naval Academy Sexual Assault Case

The story is at Big League Politics (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum):

Naval Academy Midshipman Convicted of Three Sex Crimes, Sentenced to 25 Years in Prison

Was he a diversity pick?

A midshipman at the U.S Naval Academy was sentenced on two counts of sexual assault, attempted sexual assault, burglary and obstruction of justice Wednesday, crimes that occurred in 2018 and 2019 and which targeted female classmates at the Naval Academy.

Midshipman Nixon Keago was sentenced to 25 years confinement, which will likely be served within the federal prison system.

[….]

A psychologist who testified in the trial proceedings emphasized that she believes Keago has a “low rehabilitation potential.”The midshipman was convicted of one attempted home invasion sexual assault after being initially charged with sex crimes, suggesting a psychological propensity to commit the crimes.

[….]

Prosecutors convicted Keago of breaking into the rooms of three female midshipmen who were intoxicated, and sexually assaulting them when they were asleep. He attempted the same crime against a third victim.

Keago recounted during the trial immigrating to the United States from Kenya as a child. He previously served as an enlisted US Marine before being admitted to the Naval Academy.

Continue reading here and follow links above for more gory details.

BTW, we will likely never know how he got here from Kenya as a child placed with an adoptive family.  Was the family Kenyan too?  I’m curious, but not curious enough to spend time searching, so if you find something let me know!

Missouri: 11-year-old Gives Birth in Bathtub After Being Raped for Months

This is a sick story about people who should not have been in the US in the first place.

Thanks to reader Maria for sending it.

From the New York Post:

Teen charged with incest, rape after 11-year-old relative gives birth

A St. Louis teen confessed to raping his 11-year-old relative about 100 times after she gave birth to his baby in a bathtub, according to a news report.

Cops were tipped off to the alleged abuse at the hands of Norvin Leonidas Lopez-Cante when his father brought an infant to St. Joseph Hospital on Tuesday and told police someone left the child on his front porch, KSDK-TV reported.

The baby still had its umbilical cord and placenta attached and a body temperature of 90 degrees, the NBC affiliate said.

On Thursday, police visited the father, Francisco Javier Gonzalez-Lopez, and he told them his 17-year-old son was the father of the child and their 11-year-old relative was the baby’s mother — but claimed he had no knowledge of the abuse or the pregnancy until the girl gave birth.

Lopez-Cante later admitted to authorities that he had sex with the girl about twice a week, a total of about 100 times, the report said.

The story gets worse!

From KSDK Five on Your Side:

Woman charged after 11-year-old daughter gives birth to baby in a bathtub

ST CHARLES, Mo. — A mother was charged after her 11-year-old daughter gave birth in a bathtub last week.

Lesbia Cante

Lesbia Cante pleaded not guilty Wednesday to a charge of endangering the welfare of a child. In court Wednesday, her cash-only bail was increased to $100,000 from $10,000.

[….]

Gonzalez-Lopez said he did not know the girl was pregnant or that Lopez-Cante was raping her until she gave birth to the child in their bathtub.

After police read Lopez-Cante his Miranda rights, he told police he had sex with the girl about 100 times but did not know she was pregnant. He said he did not know when he first had sex with her but said it happened about twice a week.

[….]

Lopez-Cante was charged with first-degree statutory rape, statutory sodomy and incest. His bond was set at $25,000, cash-only.

Gonzalez-Lopez was charged with endangering the welfare of a child for his role in the incident. His bail was set at $10,000, cash only.

Charging documents said he entered the country illegally and was previously deported.

Look at those bail amounts—Gonzalez-Lopez who has been previously deported gets the lowest bail of the bunch!

I didn’t see any mention of the nationality of these sickos..  Let me know if you do!

Aside from wreaking the girl’s life, the illegal aliens will now cost taxpayers a fortune as their cases move through the criminal justice system. Expensive incarceration will surely follow.

NYC: Illegal Alien Rapes and Murders 92-year-old, ICE Blasts Sanctuary City Policy

You’ve probably seen the news, but just in case here is the UK Daily Mail on the dreadful news:

ICE blasts ‘dangerously flawed’ NYC sanctuary laws for letting Guyanese illegal immigrant, 21, walk free without bail just weeks before he ‘raped and murdered a 92-year-old woman’

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has blasted New York City’s sanctuary laws, saying the city ignored a federal immigration detainer for a man who went on to be charged with the rape and murder of a 92-year-old woman.

Reeaz Khan, 21, walked free without bail on assault and gun charges in late November, six weeks before he was arrested again on Friday and charged in the horrific murder of Maria Fuertes in Queens.

On Tuesday, ICE released a statement excoriating the city for not cooperating with federal immigration enforcement, saying the murder could have been prevented if its agents had been allowed in November to take custody of Khan, a Guyanese national who is present in the U.S. illegally.

‘New York City’s stance against honoring detainers is dangerously flawed,’ said Thomas R. Decker, ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations field office director for New York. ‘It was a deadly choice to release a man on an active ICE detainer back onto the streets after his first arrest.’

There is much more here, but I warn you it is horrible.

So how did someone named Khan come to be living in Guyana?

Did you know about this—Afghan Muslims to Guyana.
