Questions surround handling of Taser assaults on disabled patients
Someone using a stun gun like a cattle prod assaulted a dozen severely disabled patients at the Sonoma Developmental Center last fall, inflicting painful thermal burns on their buttocks, arms, legs and backs.
The center’s in-house police force, the Office of Protective Services, had a suspect from the start: Archie Millora (pictured here at a firing range), a caregiver at the Sonoma center.
After the assaults were discovered, OPS made no arrest, deciding instead to handle it as an administrative matter. Also, detectives still had not interviewed Millora nine days after the revelations.
