An investigation by special agents with the TBI Medicaid Fraud Control Division, along with other agencies, has resulted in the arrest of a Shelbyville man.
In January, an investigation began after a complaint that residents at an assisted living facility in Bedford County were being abused and/or neglected. During the investigation, agents developed information that identified Cody Andrew Prestwood, age 34, a licensed practical nurse at the facility, as the individual responsible for the abuse and neglect of the residents. The investigation also revealed that from December 2021 through August 2022, Prestwood failed on multiple occasions to document those incidents and failed to seek proper treatment for the individuals involved.
On November 9th, Prestwood was arrested by the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office. He was charged with two counts of Aggravated Abuse of an Elderly Adult, two counts of Neglect of an Elderly Adult, and one count of Abuse of an Elderly Adult. Prestwood was booked into the Bedford County Jail, on a $250,000 bond.
