Those who hide the truth or prevent the truth from being known, are the very ones who wish to hide the real truth and rewrite history.

Life sentence issued for rape of Mandeville Alzheimer’s patient

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on May 26, 2006

COVINGTON — A former attendant at an assisted-living home has
been sentenced to life in prison for raping an 82-year-old
Alzheimer’s patient in October 2004.

Derrick Garrett, 49, proclaimed his innocence Monday before State District Judge Patricia Hedges issued the sentence.

Defense
attorney Mike Nunnery, suggested the jury that convicted Garrett was
motivated by racism because the victim is an elderly white woman and
the defendant is black. But Assistant District Attorney David
Weilbaecher said the case was decided by forensic evidence.

This wasn’t a black or white thing,” the prosecutor said.

He was black and she was white, so yes it was a black and white thing. If the color was switched around, the prosecutor would be screaming hate crime.
