Lewisboro group home resident says she was abused

An employee of a Mount Kisco agency that runs several group homes is accused of sexually abusing a resident. Community Living employee Shawn Rutledge, 36, was arraigned on burglary charges Thursday for allegedly breaking into a patient?s room at a Lewisboro group home. Police also expect to charge Rutledge with sexually abusing a 39-year-old mentally disabled woman who lives at the home. Police say Community Living officials informed them of the alleged incident after the woman complained to staff members. Rutledge did not enter a plea during his court appearance. His attorney says the incident never happened. Rutledge is due back in court April 9.
