A supervisor at the Edgewood Vista senior living center reportedly defended the 30-year-old rapist, claiming the elderly woman ‘flirts with this boy endlessly.
A supervisor at a Minnesota nursing home reportedly branded an 89-year-old rape victim a “flirt” who teased her 30-year-old attacker “mercilessly.”
The supervisor defended the rapist, even after he admitted to sex with the elderly woman and was arrested, according to court papers.
“Did she tell you that this was consensual?” the home’s clinical services director Marilyn Moore reportedly told a nurse examiner who inspected the woman. “Did she tell you that she flirts with this boy mercilessly?”
The shocking allegations were reported by the Star Tribune, citing court documents tied to a lawsuit against the Edgewood Vista facility in Hermantown.
The woman was locked in a psychiatric ward for nearly three days after she reported the attack, according to the documents.
In January 2013, Andrew Scott Merzwski was a caretaker at the home when he assaulted the woman.
