The head of Wisconsin’s nursing home for veterans is defending its record, despite investigations into actions of a former caregiver and a spokesman for the home.
Records show James Hucke, 41, resigned as a caretaker at the Wisconsin Veterans Home at in May after admitting he stole a credit card of an Alzheimer’s patient. Detectives say they've linked him with other thefts as well, although no charges have been filed.
Meanwhile, the State Department of Justice says a criminal investigation is under way into whether the home's spokesman, Rich Calcut, embezzled tens of thousands in donations meant to help the home and its residents.
He's been placed on paid leave.
