CORPUS CHRISTI - Testimony is underway in the trial of a former Flour Bluff adult day care owner accused of elderly abuse. Prosecutors say Najmeh Griffin put bags filled with urine and feces on two patients necks.
One of Griffin's former employees testified that she took pictures of the incidents and that Griffin told her she did it. The same employee also admitted to calling Griffin a racist behind her back.
The defense argues the witness was a disgruntled employee who disliked Griffin. Testimony will continue tomorrow.
The state shutdown the Affordable Quality Care Assisted Living Center back in 2011, after investigating allegations of patient abuse. Griffin agreed not to open another elderly care business and paid the state $350,000 in fines and attorney's fee's.
