An ABC news affiliate out of La Crosse, WI has reported that criminal charges have been filed against six teenagers accused of abusing residents at an Albert Lea, Minnesota nursing home.
Two of the teens were charged as adults while the other four are considered juveniles.
In August, the Minnesota Dept. of Health released a report showing that 15 residents had been abused. A police investigation revealed multiple incidents of physical, sexual and emotional abuse in the teens care.
