Nursing Home Worker Admits To Molestation Of Disabled Resident

Molestation Of Disabled ResidentA 26-year-old man has admitted to the molestation of a mentally disabled woman he was responsible for caring for.  The nursing home worker identified as, Daniel Griswald, confessed to multiple sexual encounters with a resident at Rest Haven Home, in Rest Haven, Michigan between March and May, 2008.

According to Rest Haven Nursing Home administrator, Brian Wilson, Griswald was a, “good, solid, employee…nobody suspected anything of him.”  According to Wilson, Griswald passed an extensive background check that included a criminal record check and a checking of the Michigan Sex Offender Registry.

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
