A male nurse in Minneapolis pleaded guilty to raping an 83-year-old dementia patient.
George Sumo Kpingbah was fired from his job after a co-worker observed his crime.
The 77-year-old African nurse will likely face four years in prison. In a civil settlement with the victim's family, he agreed to pay $15-million to the victim's estate if he is ever again convicted of a similar abuse crime. Considering Kpingbah was represented by a court-appointed lawyer, it's doubtful he would be able to pay such an incredible amount of money.

A former male nursing assistant at Walker Methodist Health Center in Minneapolis pleaded guilty Monday to raping an 83-year-old woman who suffered from severe dementia and Alzheimer’s disease — the latest in a recent surge of abuse cases involving elderly residents at nursing homes across the state.
Early in the morning of Dec. 18, 2014, George Sumo Kpingbah, 77, of Brooklyn Center, was seen by a witness moving in a “back and forth, thrusting motion” while standing at the edge of the elderly woman’s bed, according to a state investigative report. The witness, a nurse at Walker Methodist immediately contacted the night supervisor, who removed Kpingbah from the floor and called police. Kpingbah was arrested and charged with felony third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
At a Hennepin County District Court hearing Monday morning, Kpingbah stood motionless, hands folded, as his court-appointed attorney told him he could face up to four years in prison with the guilty plea. Family members of the elderly rape survivor held hands in the front row as Kpingbah calmly nodded and said, “yes,” when asked to confirm that he inserted his penis in the woman’s vaginal area.
In an unusual settlement to a separate lawsuit, reached moments before he pleaded guilty Monday, Kpingbah agreed to pay $15 million to the estate of the rape survivor if he ever is convicted again of criminal sexual conduct in any other case, or is ever found liable again for the abuse or neglect of a vulnerable adult. Kpingbah also agreed to donate $2,000 to the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MCASA) as part of the civil settlement.
