Nursing home assault


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — An elderly Iowa convicted of four sex offenses has been committed to the Mental Health Institute in Clarinda.

The Des Moines Register reports ( ) that 85-year-old William Cubbage consequently won’t stand trial in civil proceedings based on the sexual assault on a 95-year-old nursing home resident in Pomeroy, where Cubbage was staying in 2011.

Cubbage has been moved into a geriatric ward at the Clarinda facility. He was being held by the Iowa Department of Corrections awaiting a decision on whether he’d be returned to the Iowa Civil Commitment Unit for Sex Offenders, where he’d spent eight years before being sent to the Pomeroy nursing home.
