Le Roy man accused of making video of developmentally disabled man in bath tub

posted by Howard B. Owens in crime, Le Roy.

A 44-year-old Le Roy man is accused of video recording a naked developmentally disabled man while the group home resident was in a bathtub.

David C. Ewell was arraigned in Nunda Village Court on charges of second-degree unlawful surveillance, dissemination of an unlawful surveillance image, and endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person. 

Ewell was jailed on $25,000 bail or $50,000 bond. He's an employee of the New York State Developmental Disabilities Services Office, and works at the Walnut Intermediate Care Facility in Nunda.

Ewell is accused of using his cell phone, recording the man and then disseminating the 30-second recording to another person.

Lisa, This was a disabled person who could not defend himself in the care of someone he trusted. I agree that David C. Ewell should rot in prison. My question is How is Andrew Cianfrini's death different? He was unable to defend himself against someone who was supposed to be caring for him. Now Andrew is dead. How can you say that his murderer does not deserve to "rot in prison" as you feel Ewell should? How is Andrew's death less of a crime than Ewell's? I do not understand your push for the families of Andrew to put this behind them and move on. Or your idea that the sentence his murderer received was just.
