Fined $5k For Crimes

Otsego County Judge John Lambert goes over a copy of a plea agreement between CCRN LLC and the state Attorney General’s Office with Attorney Richard S. Harrow, representing CCRN LLC, which operated the Focus nursing home in the town of Otsego. The corporation pleaded guilty this morning to one count of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled individual, a Class E felony. The maximum fine under this type of felony is $5,000, which Lambert ordered the corporation to pay.  Focus’ top executive, Joseph Zupnik and Daniel Herman, pleaded guilty to a related count Sept. 12 in Otsego Town Court and face $1 million fine, community service and a banning from the nursing-home industry when they appear for sentencing Oct. 10 in the Fly Creek town court.  (Parker Fish/
