Tina Jones trusted UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital (WPIC) to protect and care for her daughter while in their care. She communicated to TAAG that her child was sexually assaulted by a male employee (over a month ago). They did go to the police and Allegheny County DA. However, they are claiming that there are issues locating evidence, despite WPC having cameras etc. Ms. Jones stated that one officer told her that it’s been hard because her daughter was “out of her mind”. The family grew frustrated with this and contacted TAAG.
Ms. Jones stated that “law enforcement is taking too long to act. He is still free and working at the same place. "My daughter and I don’t want this to happen to someone else. I cannot rest as a mother until my daughter gets justice for what has happened to her. I am tired of my children, and I being treated as if we do not matter”.
Arrest, charge, and terminate the employee.
