Posted: Jul 21, 2020 2:49 PM

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced on Tuesday that the investigation and prosecution by his Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse led to the conviction of Ashley Maypray, 36, of Madisonville, Kentucky, for reckless abuse of a vulnerable adult.

According to the Office of the Attorney General, while Maypray was employed as a nurse at a nursing home, she slapped and pinched a vulnerable adult for whom she was providing care.

On Monday, Maypray entered an Alford plea to one count of reckless abuse or neglect of an adult, a Class A misdemeanor, and was sentenced by the Hopkins Circuit Court to twelve months of probation.

As a special condition of the plea, Maypray agreed to voluntary placement on the Caregiver Misconduct Registry maintained by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services for a period of seven years.

Suspected incidents of elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation should be reported to the Attorney General’s elder abuse tip line at 1-877-ABUSE TIP (1-877-228-7384).
