GREENE COUNTY — Steven McDowell of Huber Heights was indicted Tuesday by the Greene County Grand Jury for 11 counts of Illegal Use of a Minor in Nudity-Oriented Material and other charges.
When police arrested McDowell, he allegedly had nude images of minors on his cellphone.
In addition, McDowell allegedly had sexual contact with two elderly impaired residents while working as a licensed nurse at the Pristine Senior Living and Post-Acute Care Center in Beavercreek.
The Pristine Senior Living and Post-Acute Care Center released a statement Tuesday, stating that “the safety and well-being of residents and patients is our number one priority at Pristine Senior Living of Beavercreek.”
The statement noted that McDowell is no longer employed at the facility. The statement says that Beavercreek police informed the facility that McDowell’s criminal activity involved three of its residents and their families had been informed.
“Please know from the outset of this incident, the well-being of our residents has driven our proactive course of action,” the statement from Pristine continued. “We contacted law enforcement and immediately took steps to sever the licensed nurse’s employment. Additionally, we reported this nurse’s license to the Ohio Board of Nursing.”
The Greene County Prosecutor’s Office said McDowell’s arraignment will be scheduled within the week.
McDowell is being held in the Greene County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bond.
