Blogger jailed for exploiting senator's ailing wife Published: May 18, 2014

A Mississippi blogger has been jailed on exploitation-related charges for posting photographs of U.S. Senator Thad Cochran's bedridden wife to the Internet after gaining access to her in a nursing home, according to Reuters.

Clayton Kelly, 28, is accused of sneaking into St. Catherine's Village, a continuing care retirement community in Madison, Mississippi, where Cochran's wife Rose has lived since 2000, suffering from progressive dementia.

Kelly was booked into the Madison County jail on Saturday after he "illegally and improperly obtained an image of a vulnerable adult resident without their consent for his own benefit," Madison police said in a statement. Kelly was being held on a $100,000 bond, records show.
