Owings Mills Woman Guilty of Abusing Vulnerable Adult

Musa N. Agroh, 34, received five years of probation for second-degree abuse of a vulnerable adult in an incident from May 2011.

An Owings Mills woman was sentenced to five years of probation after being found guilty of second-degree abuse of a vulnerable adult.

Musa N. Agroh, 34, was sentenced to 18 months of incarceration, all of which were suspended. She received the five years of probation, must perform 80 hours of community service in the next 120 days and cannot supervise vulnerable adults for five years, according to a release from Attorney General Douglas Gansler.

Baltimore County Circuit Judge Michael Finifter accepted Agroh’s guilty plea at a Friday hearing, according to the statement.

“The abuse of a vulnerable individual is a tragic violation of trust,” Gansler said. “When placed in the hands of others, vulnerable group home residents and their families have the right to expect nothing less than professional treatment, compassionate care and comfort.”

Agroh worked at a group home in the Milford Mill area operated by Cerebral Palsy of Central Maryland when video surveillance captured her forcing a victim to take an unauthorized medication on May 16, 2011, the press release said. The victim was a 64-year-old non-verbal adult confined to a wheelchair and dependent on caregivers for feeding, medication, personal care and movement. A resident has the right to refuse medication, the release said.

After the victim repeatedly spit out the medication, Agroh squeezed the victim’s mouth open and covered their nose and mouth with her hands. Hours later, Agroh grabbed the victim by her paralyzed arms, forcefully put her in an upright position and transferred her roughly to a bedside chair. The victim was not injured, the release said.

WHERE IN THE WORLD is the vulnerable adult abuser list as with the useless sex offender list at ??? Or is it that they are finally seeing that the cost of running the sex offender list is too costly and not at all effective or roven to stop nothing other than a costly burden to tax payers for votes for those in annapolis everytime they need votes. Here is a good read about the true costs of running this useless costly list and why many if not most states are refusing to go along with the feds. And yes don;t worry right wingers..Md. went with the feds side and spent billions to get in line with the fed rules and will not get only 5% of the costs back for a program that has not proven to be cost effective while at the same time continues to get votes for those who steal from us in Annapolis. Face it.. if this list is so great at preventing crime..WHY do we not have one for all types of VIOLENT crimes?? WHY U ASK?? Because they are TOO costly and proven non-cost effective as you will read in this article and it is one of many studies done. http://washingtonexaminer.com/many-states-fall-short-of-federal-sex-offender-law/article/feed/2036182#.UG5iDNZlQfI

What does being a "right winger" have to do with any of this and why are you use ALL CAPS so often? I use the list and often to check my area and the area of those around me and loved ones to keep tabs on residents in my area who are in this bottom feeding category. Why does it cost so much to put up a website and maintain it? Billions? Heck, if it's that lucrative, I'll run it and maintain it for 10% of the cost LOL.

Perryhallparent :: Please do your homework and see the real costs to run these lists before you speak. If you read the article I linked you will only see a part of the costs and not all the other costs involved as it has now became a cash loss for states that are willing to agree to Feds Regs. And many of the states are seeing that the sex offender lists DOES nothing to prevent crime or repeat crime and only sex offenders are on the list and did you know that if you have child over 18 and he / she has sex with their 16-17 year old male / female partner and someone complains they will be charged and put on the list..yep what a waste and if you get caught peeing outside after a hard night drinking...yep on the list...And yes it is costing the state of Md. tons of money to keep this list going and to have officers go to their homes and make sure they live where they say they live for LIFE...come on ..how many other violent criminals are running loose dealing your kids drugs/ shooting them / robbing you and breaking in your home or beating their spouses black and blue and or getting drunk over and over and killing people drunk and no list for them ??

What gives ?? I will tell you.. The costs and studies says they DO NOT WORK. And only good for those in Annapolis to honk their horn on how they are fighting crime when our crime rate is going through the roof and still no total violent offender lists. So if this list is so great why not a total violent list and have them report to police station to check in and have home inspections for life.So remember "perryhall parent "next time you call those on this list "bottom of category" then you are saying it would be okay for someone to KILL your family and destroy your kids on drugs or kill family members drunk yet again ,,, but not okay for your underage child to have sex with their 1 or 2 year older partner that we know goes on everyday. Stop living in the dark and see the light before it is too late and always remember it is not those on the LIST we need to worry about, but those who have not been CAUGHT yet . So do not put much faith in that list or governemnt or you will miss one that is not on the list and that may be one of your child's teachers or relative as 99% of sex offenders are related and or known to the victim. And when you say to keep tabs on thopse around you ?? Sounds like you have a sad lonely life to sit around and nose into those around you pasts and are you seeing the whole pictures of ALL crinimals or just off the sex offenders list?? Heck you may miss another type of violent offender and become a victim of their crime..see the picture yet ???
