Son Sues Nursing Home For Allowing 85-Year-Old Mother To Hire A Stripper
WHEN Franklin Youngblood saw the picture of his 85-year-old mother Bernice stuffing cash in the knickers of a young male stripper at Long Island’s East Neck Nursing home he was upset.
It wasn’t the sight of his inheritance disappearing; it was the perversion. So. He’s suing the home for defiling his mother for “the perverse pleasure and enjoyment of the Defendant’s staff.”
A nurse later told another of the victim’s sons that the strip show was an “entertainment event” for the patients and was done in “good faith,” according to the suit.
“Hiring male stippers to perform for the defendant’s nursing-home patients was a serial occurrence,” the suit claims. “Bernice Youngblood has lived 85 years as a traditional Baptist, hard-working, lady . . . And now she has been defiled,” [attorney John Ray] said.
A lawyer for the nursing home says the residents requested the strippers.
