Medical Expert Witness May Testify For Abuse Victims
In Gage County Courthouse, Nebraska, District Judge Paul Korslund said he may allow a medical expert witness to testify on behalf of alleged abuse victims of a former caregiver at the Beatrice State Developmental Center. Matthew Pangborn is charged with six counts of abusing a vulnerable adult and five of strangulation. The victims are so disabled that prosecutors are unsure they will be able to testify. Four other former employees have been convicted of abusing developmentally disabled men at the Beatrice State Developmental Center.
