Former Oakwood Employee Appears In Court

A Pulaski County woman accused of abuse at Kentucky's largest home for mentally challenged adults was in court Thursday for a pretrial hearing.

Christina Branscum is accused of four counts of abuse at Oakwood in Somerset. She's pleaded not guilty. Branscum was indicted on allegations that she abused four residents on three different occasions, including putting a resident's head in a toilet and flushing it.

Branscum no longer works at Oakwood and a judge ordered her to stay away from the facility and its residents.
