ST. GEORGE – Keith Dunn pled guilty to abusing his grandfather in a hearing on Monday.
Dunn was arrested in July after his grandmother went to Dixie Regional Medical Center. Medical staff found the elderly woman’s injuries to be suspicious and contacted the authorities.
Deputy County Attorney Ryan Shaum said that the maximum sentence a person could receive for abuse of an elderly individual was up to five years. He did not mention if a plea deal had been made in the Dunn case.
Dunn’s next court appearance will be Nov. 15 for sentencing.
