New Jersey psych hospital worker sentenced for sex with patient

EWING, NJ— A former employee of Trenton Psychiatric Hospital was sentenced to two years of probation today in Superior Court for having criminal sexual contact with a patient at the hospital in 2009.

Marcus Walton, 31, of Trenton, pleaded guilty to the charge in August, admitting to having sex with the patient. Prosecutors have said the sex was consensual.

Walton voluntarily left his job at the hospital and will be barred from working in a similar facility, Judge Mark Fleming said. Walton’s sentence requires him to serve 40 hours of community service, undergo a mental evaluation for sex offenders and complete any recommended treatment. He is also barred from having any contact with the victim.

  1. Hi,

    GREAT BLOG. I am glad to see others picking specific topics and targeting them to inform the public about what is really going on. I have a wordpress blog: http://www.suboxoneabuse.wordpress.com . My son died of an overdose last year as a result of being misdiagnosed by psychiatrists for many years. One of his doctors was arrested for cocaine possession and was a patient in a drug rehab. His misconduct is public information: http://w3.health.state.ny.us/opmc/factions.nsf/58220a7f9eeaafab85256b180058c032/df323896d529a7de85256a4a0047dfa6?OpenDocument . Please contact me through my blog (It won’t post automatically before I view it, so it won’t be public). I would like you to add this psychiatrist to your blog. I can give you the background on my story. Thank you, S.T.

    • Thank you!

      I visited yours as well and found it very informative. I was not even aware of this new scam drug.

      However, I could not figure out how to leave you a message.
