Remember the woman who spent nearly two years in a bathroom, sitting on the toilet so long that her body attached to the seat?

Now her boyfriend has been charged with “mistreatment of a dependent adult.”

Kory McFarren, 37, was charged Monday in Ness County District Court.

Ness County Attorney Craig Crosswhite said the mistreatment charge most closely fit the situation.

“I looked at the statutes and spoke to the attorney general’s office,” he said. “This was a very unusual set of circumstances, and this is the law that most closely applied to the situation.”

It doesn’t take a psychiatrist to recognize that both of these people have mental health issues. So would it make more sense to send McFarren to jail, or to get him the help he needs?
