Final defendant pleads guilty in unlicensed care facility case

COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- A fourth defendant has pleaded guilty to his part in running an unlicensed care home for elderly and disabled women.

Terry Catron was convicted Friday afternoon of racketeering, theft, deprivation and false imprisonment, among other charges. A Cobb County Superior Court judge sentenced the 56-year-old Cartersville resident to 20 years, with 10 to serve in prison.

Prosecutors said Catron was the primary daytime caregiver at the facility on Laurel Springs Lane in Marietta. He and co-defendant Raequel Penny provided the home's six residents with inadequate food, shelter, medicine and access to bathrooms, and kept them in tiny rooms separated by plywood partitions in the house's basement.
