Some disturbing allegations of abuse and neglect are aimed at an Oklahoma nursing home.  The accusations stem from Jones, Oklahoma, not far from Oklahoma City.

They involved 41-year-old James Curnutt.  His family says he was raped and abused while living at the Oak Hills Living Center from August 2007 through February 2008.  They also say Curnutt was neglected and left in soiled clothing.

"He's incontinent.  Been left wet.  Been left dirty.  I've had to go down and say, ‘please change James,'" said his father, Richard Curnutt.

The family says Oak Hills didn't properly investigate the allegations of abuse.

Oak Hill leaders say they did look in to the accusations, but did not find any criminal activity.  The health department determined Oak Hills was neglectful.
