Ran adult home in Williston

TALLAHASSEE –Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office today arrested a Levy County resident and charged her with neglect of a disabled adult, false imprisonment, aggravated abuse, and exploitation.

Allegations against Priscilla Smith Johnson, owner of Johnson’s Adult Family Care Home in Williston, include neglecting to provide a bed for residents of the home, failing to provide medical services for a resident’s wounds, restraining a disabled adult with handcuffs, willfully abusing a disabled adult and causing wounds on her wrists and permanent disfigurement, and failing to pay two disabled adult residents their required monthly personal needs allowance. Johnson’s bond was set at $205,000.

“I thank the Levy County Sheriff’s Office for partnering with us on our efforts to uncover and put an end to this deplorable conduct," Bondi said.

Johnson was arrested after a collaborative investigation by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the Levy County Sheriff’s Office.
