A former Mitchell-Hollingsworth CNA has been charged in the rape of a male patient that allegedly occurred last Thursday night. Zachariah Reeves has been charged with Elder Abuse and First Degree Sodomy. The charge officially reads sodomy since it was anal contact. Reeves’ victim is reportedly 68 years old. A source has told PNS that the patient, while severely handicapped, was able to provide an oral statement to police investigators. At this point, state investigators will be looking into the incident also.
