Antrim County Medical Care Facility Volunteer Accused of Sex Crime

A Mancelona man is accused of grabbing a woman’s breast at a medical care facility he volunteers at in Antrim County.

When Meadowbrook Care Facility first got the complaint, they immediately started an investigation with the Antrim County sheriff’s office.

Deputies say it happened at the Bellaire facility earlier this month.

Yousef Jabara is now charged with fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Meadowbrook has since taken Jabara’s rights as a volunteer and clergy member, but he is still an active trustee for Mancelona.

Jabara will be back in court October 28.

Administrators at the Meadowbrook Medical Care Facility say it’s shocking when they receive allegations like this.

In order to keep their residents and everyone safe they make sure to immediately investigate the situation.

On September 8th a resident told a charge nurse that Jabara was visiting her and grabbed her breast.

The facility tells us Jabara and the resident know each other and it was common for him to visit with her.

“This individual Mr Jabara is well known in the community. He’s been a longtime visitor, volunteer at Meadowbrook, so it’s just shocking when these things come up.”

Now Jabara’s wife is also a resident at the facility.

Administrators say he is allowed to visit her but only in her bedroom and public areas monitored by staff.

Jabara is also a trustee for the Mancelona.

The village has not said if he is still on their trustee board after this arrest.
