The woman who roughly handled a patient at the Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center will spend 180 days in county jail for abuse of a vulnerable adult.

At her sentencing, Crystal Nelisse, 48, expressed her “deepest apologies” to the woman’s family saying that she recognized that “my actions and behavior were completely wrong and unacceptable” in the 2019 incident, according to a transcript in the case. She hoped that the 180-day recommendation, which was reached in an earlier plea agreement, could be less so that she didn’t lose her job with Amazon in Massachusetts, where she had moved after the charge put an end to her 13-year nursing career.
