Sudbury woman files negligence lawsuit

A Sudbury nursing home resident has filed a lawsuit against the home and its owner, alleging negligence in hiring a man she said sexually assaulted her in 2009.
Ruby McDonough, 63, through her lawyer, Harold Levine, filed the lawsuit in Middlesex Superior Court against the Sudbury Pines Extended Care Center and its owner, Roberta C. Henderson.
Henderson was served the suit yesterday.
In February 2009, McDonough accused then-Sudbury-Pines-employee Kofi Agana of sexually assaulting her.
McDonough suffers from expressive aphasia, a condition that limits her ability to speak or communicate.
Agana, 50, was found not guilty last year in Framingham District Court of the sexual assault after a two-day trial.
“Our focus is on accountability,” said Levine. “For us, it’s about finding out who, how and why? In particular, we want to find out how Mr. Agana had access to Ms. McDonough. From what I understand, he was here illegally, yet he was licensed, he was hired and he was supervised.”
