FAYETTE, IOWA — Three Certified Nursing Assistants at the Prairie View Residential Care have been arrested for having sex with patients. The busts occurred just weeks after two other CNAs at the same center were arrested on identical charges.

Last Friday, Fayette deputies brought in Prairie View employees Shelby Sebring, 24; Carolyn Wiedrich, 44; and Jamie Pagel, 32.

This latest trio joins CNAs Paige Johanningmeier, 23, and Megan Penney, 26, who got picked up by officers on March 5. Authorities charged all five women with felony counts of sexual exploitation by a mental health worker. They were also each subsequently released on $2,000 bond.

Police became aware of problematic worker-patient relations at Prairie View on February 21. Two clients who had been court-ordered to the facility for mental illness issues had simply walked out and gone missing.

Investigators determined that Johanningmeier and Penney had been sexually involved with the missing patients. The two men were located and returned to a different care center.

In the course of looking into that situation, officers allege they discovered a hotbed of sexual wrongdoing among other staff members and clients.

After the latest three arrests, Sheriff Marty Fisher told the press:

"These CNAs have violated the trust of not only their employers, but also the families of these patients who put their trust in these individuals to care for their family member."

Specifically, Wiedrich stands accused of engaging in a sex act with a resident on more than 30 occasions. Court documents further claim that Pagel allegedly kissed and inappropriately touched a client on two occasions, while Sebring reportedly engaged in intercourse with a patient one time.

If convicted, each CNA suspect could face five years in prison.
