Detroit Lakes, Minn. (WDAY TV) - A Detroit Lakes man will spend 74 days in jail after a troubling case of mistreatment involving a nursing home patient.

36-year old Quantel Morris was sentenced to one year in jail with 245 days stayed and time served. He'll be on two years probation.

The incident happened at Sunnyside Care Center in Lake Park in January. Morris stuffed a sock in a 98-year old's mouth.

He says the woman, with dementia, wouldn't quit hollering while he changed her. The Department of Health investigated. Morris has since been fired.
