Mentally Disabled Man Awarded $118 Million After Being Beaten in Care Home

A jury in the State Court of Bibb County on Wednesday awarded $118 million in damages to a mentally disabled man who was beaten in a series of assaults at a personal-care home’s day center nearly a decade ago.

The beatings happened in November 2013 at a day center for the developmentally disabled in Gordon, east of Macon.
