Woman given probation in beating case

The Hagerstown woman charged with beating her father on Nov. 30 received probation before judgment Tuesday in Washington County District Court.

Gladys Irene Dawson, 54, of 479 Mitchell Ave., pleaded guilty to second-degree assault. That plea was stricken by Judge Ralph France and the probation imposed, according to court records.

Washington County Assistant State's Attorney Arthur Rozes said Dawson was put on supervised probation for 18 months and fined $425. She had no prior criminal record.

Her father, Thomas Lee Turner, 79, lives at 471 Mitchell Ave., police said.

Turner made it known that he wanted Dawson to care for him again, Rozes said. She had been his primary caregiver when the incident occurred.

Dawson was charged with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and reckless endangerment, Hagerstown City Police said.

When officers arrived Nov. 30, they found Turner had wounds on his arms, blood on his clothes and was covered with soup, police said.
