A Conyers woman was charged with operating an unlicensed group home in Conyers for those with mental illnesses.
Sharon Ann Seats, 46, was charged after an investigation by the Conyers Police Marshal along with Code Enforcement and the Department of Community Health, for operating an unlicensed home health facility out of her home on Creek Forest Court in Conyers.
CPD Cpl. Chad Sims, the City of Conyers Marshal, was notified by police patrol of a residence in the Forest Villa subdivision that appeared to be operating as a personal care home business.
Cpl. Sims contacted the Ga. Department of Community Health, the government organization charged with regulating personal care homes and issuing licenses for the same, who confirmed neither this address nor the resident is licensed with their agency.
Sharon Seats told police she was formerly a certified nurse assistant at Serenity personal care home in Stone Mountain prior to it being shut down following several investigations by the Department of Community Health.
Seats stated she then relocated to 1213 Creek Forest Court and "took some patients from Serenity with [her]".
Seats was housing two adult males and one adult female, all suffering from various forms of mental illness, and collecting several hundred dollars payment each month from each patient.
