Mentally Disabled Man Awarded $118M After Being Beaten in Care Home

Legal gavel on top of money.

A jury in the State Court of Bibb County on Wednesday awarded $118 million in damages to a mentally disabled man who was beaten in a series of assaults at a personal-care home’s day center nearly a decade ago.

The beatings happened in November 2013 at a day center for the developmentally disabled in Gordon, east of Macon.

In a lawsuit filed by Betty Gill, the mother of Joseph “Joey” Cason Jr., the man who was assaulted, claimed he had been “repeatedly and sadistically beaten and otherwise abused by employees” at the center in episodes recorded by a surveillance camera.
