Mya Moss, Jorden Bruce and Lizeth Ramirez of Jefferson, GA have been arrested and charged after filming a SnapChat video in the room of a dying hospice patient.
Jefferson Police Detective Jay Parker tells @11Alive that the patient had just suffered a stroke and the three ladies were told to monitor the patient while they awaited the hospice nurse. Instead of actually caring for the patient, the ladies recorded SnapChat videos while still inside the room and even called it “The End.” The patient has since died.
“They were obviously more interested in playing on the phone and making the video and cutting up and making a joke of the situation,” Parker said. “My understanding is that the hospice nurse had been contacted, and these employees were supposed to be watching the female, and obviously that wasn’t happening.” In the video, Ramirez and Bruce can be seen sitting in chairs laughing, cursing and using a vape cigarette while Moss actually shot the video.
All three of the workers have been charged with exploitation and intimidation of disabled adults which, under Georgia law, is a felony and carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison or a fine of up to $50,000.
