Sentencing set for neglectful Md. caretaker
It's sentencing day for a former caretaker who left three severely disabled men locked in a car outside a Frederick diner while he ate lunch.
Forty-seven-year-old Brian Fleming could get up to 18 months behind bars Wednesday. He pleaded guilty in April to three counts of neglecting a vulnerable adult.
Police arrested Fleming Sept. 20 at the diner after finding the men sweating and in apparent distress as outside temperatures approached 75 degrees. One car window was about one-quarter open.
Prosecutors say two of the men were blind, one had Down syndrome and all had a functional age of less than 2.
Fleming said in April that he left the men in the car because crowds upset them.
