Englewood Housing Authority Not Amused…

A drug and prostitution sting inside a senior citizen building: For outsiders, funny stuff.

But now that the notoriety has quieted, the no-joke subject of how to protect elderly residents from more such criminal elements was the focus of an un-smiling Housing Authority board Monday night.

And other than increased vigilance and talking more with tenants, there was no ready answer by the cash-strapped authority.

It was the board’s first meeting since being overwhelmed with media attention about the arrests of James Parham, 75 and Cheryl Chaney, 66 on drug and nuisance charges. Both lived in the Vincente K. Tibbs Senior Citizen Building, a 152-unit public complex managed by the authority.

The salacious story was picked up by media worldwide and became joke fodder for TV talk-show host David Letterman and Saturday Night Live.

    "Review of documentation of the administrator's interviews in staff #5's personnel record confirmed that she had been allowing residents to watch pornographic videos in her car on the 11:00PM-7:00AM shift."This is one of hundreds and hundreds of violations cited by licensing inspectors at Oakwood assisted living facility in Suffolk, Virginia.Four of these six facilities, run by Scott Schuett with 400 victims, REMAIN OPEN, despite the fact that they lost their license up to a year ago.The hearing scheduled for this week is now in the process of being continued, once again.Virginia, what the heck? What will it take to get you to protect the elderly from this ongoing abuse and neglect?
