NHC Nursing Home Rapist Gets 60 Years In Prison

Posted By on Fri, May 14, 2010 at 12:03 PM

James Wright, a 35-year-old former nurse aide, was sentenced to 60 years in prison today on four counts of aggravated sexual battery of elderly residents in his charge at Murfreesboro-headquartered National Health Care Corp.'s Bristol faclity, a source close to the case told Pith minutes ago.

According to a Bristol Herald Courier report, the circuit court judge presiding over the case said Wright's crime was "undescribable, despicable." As a testament to just how batshit crazy Wright is, a psychological assessment indicated he blamed his victims for being "overly affectionate."

Wright entered an Alford plea, waiving his right to a trial and putting himself at the mercy of the court without actually admitting guilt. According to the Pith source, he must serve at least 85 percent of the sentence — or 51 years — which would make him roughly 86 years old by the time he's released. (Nursing-home age?)
