Nurse Assistant Accused of Abuse at Nursing Home

28-year-old, Sharoia D. Hill, was arraigned on two counts of aggravated battery, alleging that she struck an 87-year-old man in the face with a fist while working at a Champaign County nursing home. Sheriff's Lt. Ed Ogle said Hill is a certified nursing assistant in the Alzheimer's unit of the nursing home in Urbana and became upset with the man. Two witnesses saw her hit him with a closed fist sometime between 5 and 6 p.m., Ogle said. The Class 3 felony charges carry potential penalties ranging from probation to three to five years in prison upon conviction.
