A Warren man has pleaded guilty of physical abuse charges at a residential care facility.

Quincy Trotter, 21, of Warren, pleaded guilty to third-degree battery. He was employed as a Resident Care Technician Assistant at the Southeast Arkansas Human Development Center, according to a news release from Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.

On December 3, 2019, Trotter struck a client with his closed fist, injuring the client. Under a plea agreement, Trotter was sentenced to complete one year of supervised probation, pay a $1,000 fine plus court costs and complete a course in anger management. The case was prosecuted in coordination with the Tenth Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Thomas Deen, Rutledge said.

“Arkansans should never be worried about the care their loved ones are receiving in our State’s residential care facilities and Arkansas’s most vulnerable should always be granted the highest quality care,” Rutledge said. “Any form of abuse against Arkansans residing in a Medicaid funded facility will not be tolerated by my office.”
