In 2008, Jamison Adsit was working as a safety companion, tasked with ensuring the security and well-being of patients in a hospital in Syracuse, NY. Six weeks into the job, Jamison says he was accused of something unthinkable: sexually assaulting a female patient.
Days later, Jamison was arrested, charged with and ultimately convicted of committing a criminal sexual act in the second degree. Despite his criminal conviction, Jamison adamantly denies doing anything wrong with his patient and swears he was the one who was attacked! Jamison claims the patient grabbed him by the shirt and pants, and intentionally made contact with his clothed genitals.
Jamison’s mother, Heidi, says her 23-year-old son had a girlfriend and a date to get to that night, so why would he touch this woman, who Jamison claims was 45 years old, disheveled, unbathed and homeless. Jamison says he didn’t hesitate to report what happened that night because he had nothing to hide. However, one of Jamison’s co-workers walked in that night and says he thought he’d walked in on a couple having sex but quickly realized it was something far more disturbing.
Jamison, who spent five years in prison, maintains his innocence and says he is absolutely convinced he got a bum deal in court and doesn’t deserve to be listed on the sex offender registry.
