Charleston County woman accused of abusing disabled patients

A Ridgeville woman is accused of abusing two disabled patients under her care. The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office released the court affidavits stating Georgette Leann Williams, 36, worked for SC Mentor Network. Mentor is a contract company for the SC Department of Disability and Special Needs. According to authorities, a co-worker reported Williams after witnessing the alleged abuse.

The complaint says Williams had been seen yelling, intimidating and pushing residents at 2104 Chancellory Lane. The co-worker told authorities that she saw bruising and scratches on a person under Williams’ care. When the witness asked Williams about it, she claimed she used a dull electric razor which caused the scratches on the victim’s neck.  The witness provided pictures to the detective showing the redness and bruising and authorities say it was obvious the victim was forcibly shaved.   Other witnesses told authorities that Williams made one victim sit on the floor, back against the wall with hands behind his back on numerous occasions. The detective working the case checked with the Mentor Network and found that is not an approved method allowed by the company.

Wilson faced a bond judge Thursday afternoon and was issued a $10,000 surety bond.
