Baltimore County Caregiver Charged with Abuse
of a Vulnerable Adult

BALTIMORE, MD ( May 12, 2011) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Tolulope Modupe Omojola, 24, of the 4600 block of Debilen Circle in Baltimore County, was charged in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County with two counts each of abuse of a vulnerable adult, second degree assault, and interference with the rights of individuals.  The charges arise out of an alleged assault that occurred on January 1, 2011 at a group home owned by the Center for Social Change.  Omojola was a caregiver for two developmentally disabled individuals at the group home. 

Abuse of a vulnerable adult is a misdemeanor punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.  Second degree assault, also a misdemeanor, is punishable by 10 years in prison and a $2,500 fine.  Interference with the rights of an individual is a misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.  The case was investigated by the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit based on a referral from the Baltimore County Police.  A criminal indictment is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and a defendant is presumed innocent until the State proves the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
