Kentucky Attorney General Announces Indictment/Arraignment of Hopkins County Former Certified Med Technician 

HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (10/6/2014) – On October 1, 2014, Attorney General Jack Conway announced the indictment and arraignment of a former certified medication technician on two counts of caretaker neglect.

On Sept. 16, a Hopkins County grand jury returned the indictment on 35-year-old Terri Henry. Henry pleaded not guilty during her arraignment hearing this afternoon in Hopkins Circuit Court.

Henry, a former certified medication technician at Dawson Springs Health & Rehabilitation Center, is accused of not providing medication to patients on two occasions. It is alleged that the medications were found in the trash can connected to the medication cart that Henry was using.

Attorney General Conway’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Unit investigated this case.

It is being prosecuted by the Hopkins County Commonwealth’s Attorney.

A pretrial conference in this case has been scheduled for Nov. 10 in Hopkins Circuit Court.

Caretaker neglect is a class C felony. Each count is punishable by one to five years in prison.

The Attorney General’s office states that a charge is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
