Three former care home bosses have been accused of manslaughter by gross negligence after Ivy Atkin, 86, died in November 2012, just days after she was moved out of the Autumn Grange care home in Nottingham.
The care home company, Sherwood Rise Limited, has admitted a charge of corporate manslaughter. Yousef Kahn was sentenced to three years and two months after pleading guilty to gross negligence manslaughter. He was also disqualified from being a company director for eight years.
Mohammed Khan, who was employed as the Manager at Autumn Grange, was sentenced to one year imprisonment suspended for two years for a breach of sections 3 and 37 under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. He was also disqualified from being a company director for 5 years.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) confirmed it was the first care home company to be charged and sentenced under the Corporate Manslaughter Act. Click here to read more
