San Diego's Superior Court's Judge Maino delivered justice for two vulnerable women who were raped by an 18-year old dishwasher-cum-caregiver - Bradley Thomas.  CARR attended the sentencing hearing in Dept 1302 on 29 August 2019 and was privileged to sit among victims' family members and law enforcement personnel as the sentence was delivered:  8 years in prison. This is a triumph for elder justice advocates and for the District Attorney's Office - specifically Scott Pirrello.  It may go on to serve as an example for DA's around the state to aggressively pursue criminal actions against individuals who commit crimes inside California's assisted living facilities (also called residential care facilities for the elderly - RCFEs).
