Pennsylvania Passes New Law to Further Penalize Caregivers Who Sexually Abuse Elders

Pennsylvania recently passed a new law to further penalize caregivers who sexually abuse elders and care-dependent people. Attorney Rob Peirce of Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C. was interviewed by The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review for his insight into this sensitive legal matter. He pointed out that the elderly population is often overlooked because many elders live in homes that keep them separated from their families. With COVID procedures making it more difficult than ever to visit elders in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, the risk of being overlooked only increased further.
