Channing Butler Dontrell Netter

A male nurse and 3 of his friends are serving time behind bars for sexually assaulting dementia patients at an Illinois nursing facility.

Channing Butler, 28, pictured left, worked alone on the night shift at Bickford Assisted Living and Memory Care Center in west Champaign, Illinois. Prosecutors say Butler let Dontrell Netter, 24, and two other men into the nursing home at night so he could videotape them having sex with vulnerable elderly victims.

On Thursday Netter was sentenced to 30 years in prison for assaulting a 90-year-old patient in an attack that prosecutors called "calculated and despicable".

Dontrell Netter Butler was sentenced to serve 14 years in prison in 2016 for allowing his friends into the facility. He admitted he also sexually assaulted patients while alone on duty at night.

During Netter's trial, prosecutors showed jurors a photo from Butler's cell phone that showed a man having sex with an elderly patient. Butler said he wasn't certain if Netter was the man committing the act. The man's face wasn't visible in the photo.

Netter's grandmother also testified for the defense, saying she purchased all of her grandson's clothes for him and she did not recognize the clothing in the photo of the man.

Butler and Netter's accomplices Dean Goble, 23, and Trent Warren, 20, admitted attempted aggravated criminal sexual assault and were sentenced to 14 and 10 years respectively.

On Thursday Netter's attorney, Michael McClellan, gave some insight into the minds of young black men who regress back to primitive sexual urges when they believe they will not be caught or held accountable for their actions.

McClellan claimed his client was only having sex with dementia patients to gain "more sexual experience" with women.

"All that Dontrell knows at that moment is he's got a chance to get more sexual experience," said McClellan.

He added: "That is a desire that has led many young men to do things that in the calm light of day they would never contemplate doing."

The News Gazette reported that Netter was unable to complete sexual intercourse on the elderly patient, but he still committed "serious sexual assaults" on her.

Judge Tom Difanis, who sentenced Netter on Thursday, said, "Hopefully there’s a special place in hell for people like Channing Butler."

    Y'all nasty af and desperate af. Young men like you have to fawk crazy poosey. Can't even find a real woman to fawk. Lames have zero game...can't pick up a real woman so they have to rape people who aren't in their right mind. Nasty as$es.

  • Guest©

    I am heartboken and disgusted. Why would you disrespect the elderly this way?!? These are truly the end of days.

  • Gloria

    Its some sick a** people in the world. They will definitely get their karma in prison and will soon find out what its like to be sexually assaulted! The fact that these dudes will be eventually released back out in the public is also a concern. Keep them in their for life!

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Wait what?!?!?!

    Put them under the jail house. What they did to this elderly people they need the same thing done to them in prison. Disgusting

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Sick. Clearly some mental health issues there. But, naturally since these are black folks, that won't be the narrative. They'll be animals...super predators...deserving of the electric chair. But the yt man that rapes old ladies, his daughter, etc. is a pillar of the community and it would do to much damage to lock him up.

  • Vonn

    Douse them with gasoline & set them on fire.

  • PennyWise

    another story about black men...where are all the black guys on here who quick to post negative comments about the black woman...say something...oops you no where to be

    The elderly and children, our most vulnerable citizens and people who abuse them should burn in hell.

  • Queen B

  • bemetoo

    nasty no words to defend them but how do you charge him with rape base on a picture but cant see the person committing the crime?

  • Junkanoo

    Vile ,how is sex without consent a turn on maybe that's the appeal they held all the power. Imagine how loved ones of the victims must feel ,they couldn't get enough it seems he even had the nerve to tell his friends and instead of calling him out they decide to join him, disgraceful.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    The devil rounding up his people to join him in hell. Hell enlarges itself daily. Smh

  • Yardgirl

    The face of EVIL!! How could they do such a heinous act against those who cannot defend themselves? There is a special place in hell for them!!

  • Jen_no_juice

    Well he's about to get all the experience he needs in jail. They're sick!

  • jayhawkpride

    Something like this happened to my great uncle back in the day. He was in his 90's and got raped by a 27 year old male employee at a nursing home.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Prison is too good for these ppl. What happened to buying prostitutes? A niggah needing sexual "experience "rapes elderly in. A nursing home??? He must have intended to use that experience in prison.
    Have all the sex workers bcom "heauxs " too good for purchase by these needy niggahs? Ijs,

  • morenYAHdelsur


  • Goodii2Shoes

    My thoughts exactly.
    &throw kindling on the flames.

  • Yetunde

    I can't even begin to express how disgusting I think this is. My heart sunk through the floor when I read the headline.

  • datjerk

    justice was served.

    This is some sick shit. Yuck.

    Wtf?? We're living amongst some twisted, sick people.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Say what now?? Jesus, Buddha, Alah, somebody please... Nothing is shocking anymore. This earthly world is wicked!

  • SweetTEE

    Yo, wtf? Man look, I cant even start to explain what I would do if something like that happened to my gma. I would flip this world upside down. Just trifling.

  • cherrypie

    Thats so messed up. My 93 year old grandmother just died late last year from Alzheimer's. This makes me soooo angry. These women are as defenseless as a newborn. SMH. They got what they deserved and still have to answer to God.

  • Diva_woman

    That defense attorney needs to kill himself. How could you even open your mouth to say such a thing. If those boys hired him they are even dumber than they already sound if that’s possible. Had to be a white male to even let such ignorance come out of his mouth. He’s basically saying black men are animals. They might’ve been better off representing themselves.

  • Kanyade

    Nasty, low-down, dirty outfit.

  • Ni Ni

    They should never be allowed out of jail. Why only 14 years? We need longer jail time or quick execution for these demented types.

  • SweetTEE

    I say Off with their heads.

  • Diva_woman

    I couldn’t believe the defense got away with saying that. The Duggar boy sure didn’t do any time for raping his defenseless young sisters. The officer let him paint his home for a few summers. But a white attorney (I’m assuming) gets to stand up in court and say black boys are animals so they just did what they do. ?????I’m at a loss for words

  • Luv Pitties

    Father God...?

    Satan is real and usually is right in our on families. I thought the parents in California was evil but this here........I'm just nauseous!

    McClellan claimed his client was only having sex with dementia patients to gain “more sexual experience” with women.

    wait what now????

  • Ni Ni

    He's going to hell right with them.

  • Rayne

    Now this is crazy and sick! Give ‘em life!

  • Phillybruh

    Even when you have no defense you have to provide them one and if his client wasn't going to plead guilty than that is the best he could do it.

  • Phillybruh
  • Coffee1st

    Sexual perversion is the order of the day. The ones that run this globe practice this type wickedness. The consequences in respect to the crimes committed are not balanced or just. They convict and sentence according to how it will benefit them or further their agenda. There is no justice in their rules/policy/laws, only oppression. If any of the aforementioned does"benefit" us, you can bet your sweet behind its benefitting them as well - in one way or another

  • shun king

    stuff similar to this goes on all the time in the"hood" and else where when you got a bunch of guy intimidating and running trains on young ass girls laughing about it and recording it

  • Roderick2011

  • Quitedeliteful

    This is just horrible... I hope the employee was sent to jail...

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Demons are masquerading as humans. That's what I believe. Notice the majority of people who are committing heinous crimes like this very seldom if at all show no type of remorse. The devil is real.

  • country57

    Evil, just plain evil. Low down dirty bastards.

  • Quitedeliteful

    These are some heartless bastards!!!! They are gonna get more sexual experience than they can handle in the pokey....

  • Staci Elle

    Im so sorry man.

  • Tammie Reed

    Very sick story, may they all rot in hell!

  • You Could Never

    I waited a good long time to come in for this one. Crimes against kids, animals, and the elderly make me BEYOND damn it SICK. Im so mad at them. I hope they get all of what they deserve. Im so angry

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    McClellan claimed his client was only having sex with dementia patients to gain “more sexual experience” with women.
    This kind of thing right here is why so many people have zero respect for trial lawyers. Some of them will say ANYTHING in defense of even the most perverted clients.
    And their consciences dont bother them at all. As long as the check clears, that's all they're concerned about.


    They should receive the death penalty. America plays with people to much ... I have zero tolerance for perverts and people who abuse elderly people.

  • Blue

    This is sick.

  • BlahBlahBlah

    I feel sorrow for these unknowing victims. Sick, vile, and inhumane bastards. May they receive their penalty in any manner in the penal system

  • brillant smith

    I couldn't been his lawyer defending that sick behavior. That is horrible. I hope that get all the sexual experience they need in jail.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    ??? my madea has dementia!!

    Castrate those demons and I hope every hole and crevice is filled in prison!

  • Kemi

    Sickening! These perverts taking advantage of a vulnerable population. Ppl like these give professional medical caregivers a bad name.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    And children.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Great more degenerates. And grandma right there with the excuses.

  • Tee Bullock

    Ughhh my stomach is turning!!

  • i troll it like i see it

    This is beyond sick. I would never get a good nights rest if I had a loved one in a nursing home. Too many stories of abuse ?
    On another note, I think many men would "revert back to primitive sexual urges" if they think they won't be held accountable, I've seen some pretty bad things from people I never thought would act like that, never thought were capable, but it was because "everyone was doing it" or it was "ok in a certain environment." Many men really will violate you if they get a chance and dont think anything will happen, even the nicest guy gets primitive when it comes to sex. This mess at the nursing home is just beyond comprehension though, truly sickening.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    And in white suburbia. Stop it Shun.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I agree, this is disturbing as hell.


    When you allow your culture to be corrupted with perverts and moralless individuals.

  • i troll it like i see it

    My family and I came very close to putting someone we love in a home because we didn't want to face the truth and wanted to leave them on life support. I'm so glad we didn't do that and decided to let her go because the worrying about her day in and day out would be too much to bear. These stories are beyond sad. I hope they get max time for this.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    *heavy sigh* I'm at a loss for words at the moment...

  • cherrypie

    Im so sorry. Its one of most awful things you can watch a loved one go through. It truly is.

  • itsjismemelly

    off to hell they go and I know they will definitely be dealt with

  • Staci Elle

    Thanks sis

  • shun king

    you do see where i say elsewhere dont you???

  • Marlika

    This makes me sick to my stomach. They all need a got damn bullet to their heads including his lying ass grandma!! She’s just was bad for lying for him. The worker should have got more than 14 years!!???

  • BadAss Will

    The excuses these lawyers come up with for these defendants are disrespectful to the victims. Hope the get rape in jail.

  • Chuck

    Wow! This is a gd shame!

  • klwbaby

    Now they can use all their "experience" behind bars... Better start stocking up on syrup or jelly.

  • Shaun M

    Who raised these people? These men are pure evil and lack souls. If he could brutalize an innocent elderly person, a stranger, was his mother, grandmother safe from his perversion? Pitiful!

  • Renee26

    I'd be cutting dacks off over my granny

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    No you was not clear. But you made it very clear that it’s in the hood. Again, stop it.

  • 1BlueStar

    How were they caught? Who turned the authorities on to the video I wonder...
    Nasty muthfukkas! I'd have 0.00 support for my son if this was him!

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Nursing homes are breeding grounds for all kinds of abuse. I'm trying to tell you.

    A person with any kind of moral compass would never be able to last in places like that. Patients are over medicated, slammed down, yelled at, neglected and ignored lied on, physically abused, financially abused and sexually abused.

    And the ones with no family are treated the worst. It would bring anyone with a heart to tears. LPN's working two jobs which leads to them working 24 hour shifts, so they stay getting medication minded up. It's so sad.

    I wouldn't recommend anyone putting their loved ones in a nursing home. Rehab is one thing because they get to go home eventually but these nursing homes are not monitored so anything goes.

  • HelloToni

    There is a special place in hell for people like this.....

  • shun king

    and white folks can be in the hood just like blacks in suburbs

  • Solstice

    You would really have to be a sick and demented fckuer to do something as evil and vile as this!! Never in my life would I have thought young boys would do this kind of ish…I’m almost at a loss for words ??????????????

  • Solstice

    It is beyond sick…

  • Diva4lyfe

    I am at a point that I don't know what to say. Then the lawyer said he tried to get some experience GTFOH with that BS then the grandma saying she bought all his clothes this a grown azz man he should be buying all his clothes and to be honest she shouldn't have said ish cause what if the roles were reversed and she was in the home and they was doing it to her it would be a different story. All they azz should go to jail for life with no parole, sorry bastards....

  • Nina Ross

    Meanwhile wipipo rape children, the elderly, animals all the time that's where this type of behavior came from

  • Jygalo

    WTH does this have to do with white ppl?!! These are animals and yeah they’re blk. No one else to blame but their sick demented blk selves

  • Panther Charleston

    Something else I really don't understand, "Netter’s grandmother also testified for the defense, saying she purchased all of her grandson’s clothes for him and she did not recognize the clothing in the photo of the man." Whaaaaa? He gotta job, grown, and you still purchasing his clothes?! What in all the hell?

  • VM

    This is so disgusting, I feel like the conspirators got off with a light sentence. The punishment should've been more or even across the board. The grandmother is the enabler and the blind support of her grandson after he admits guilt is quite disturbing.

  • Patricia

    exactly. women are just throwing free cooch away left and right. theyre just evil predators

  • TheOwley

    Humanity keeps descending into the big ol' ass rabbit hole.

    And for the record, Butler:
    Is not a Registered Nurse (RN),
    Is not a License Practical Nurse (LPN),
    He is a certified nursing assistant (CNA). They are nurse helpers, training consist of about 8 week where they learn to work with patients.
    In the old days he was called an orderly,
    This pig has no license to get revoked,
    He was no NURSE.

    Also: "Before sentencing Thursday, Netter told Judge Tom Difanis that he was sorry that he "allowed myself to fall victim to being led astray by Mr. Butler."

    So Butler is inviting him to rape a patient. At what point are you a victim when you actually agree to go and rape a patient. Somebody, help me here. smdh.

  • ?Royalty?

    I hope they are raped repeatedly in prison. ?

    Sick and evil

  • OP2

    Those animals are responsible for their own bad thoughts & personal behavior. -wipipo didn't whisper into their ears nor forced them to do the evil things that they have spent their lives doing. They are reflecting who and what they are.

    Stop trying to scapegoat or blame others to distract from holding those criminal animals accountable for who they are and what they do.

  • Tena

    Disgusting! I hope they rot in prison.

  • MissMy2Cents

    This is the sickest, most disturbing thing ever. I never want to live in one of these facilities. If they aren't neglecting your needs, someone is preying on your vulnerability. Maybe Bubba' and the rest of the bunkees in prison like fresh meat. Karma. . .
