Daughter Pleads Guilty In Elder Abuse Case
SCRANTON — A woman from Lackawanna County who was caught on camera abusing her elderly mother entered a guilty plea Wednesday.
Carolyn James from Dickson City pleaded guilty to charges recklessly endangering another person.
A camera recorded her last year beating and screaming obscenities at her 96-year-old mother who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.
James installed the camera so she could watch her mother online while she worked, but it was a man in Chicago who saw the abuse on a webcam and notified authorities.
