Donald E. Chinn, 62, has pleaded not guilty to one felony count of rape. He is being held in the Richland County Jail on a $100,000 bond, the Mansfield News Journal reports.
Chinn is accused of sexually assaulting an 84-year-old resident last Thursday at The Waterford at Mansfield, WCMH Channel 4 reports.
A spokesperson with The Waterford sent a statement to ABC 6 saying Chinn has been suspended indefinitely.
“We are taking swift action and conducting an internal investigation as well as cooperating with authorities," the statement says.
Chinn will appear in Mansfield Municipal Court on Thursday for a preliminary hearing.
