40 Year Sentence for Rockville Medical Worker Who Sexually Abused Psych Patients

Today in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, MD, Judge David Boynton sentenced, defendant, Macdoff Oghenejabo Okah,46, of Silver Spring, to 60 years suspend all but 40 years in prison and 5 years of supervised probation upon release. The sentence was for six counts of criminal charges related to a guilty plea entered by Okah on charges of sexual abuse of a vulnerable adult and sexual offense in the third degree and Okah’s conviction in a separate case where a jury found him guilty of one count of sexual abuse of a vulnerable adult and three counts of sexual offense in the third degree.

There were two victims involved and the incidents occurred in 2018 and 2019 while Okah was employed as a Psychiatric Tech at Adventist Healthcare Behavioral Health located in the 14900 block of Broschart Rd. in Rockville. He was in a position where he was entrusted with the care of these women and took advantaged of that, targeting them while they were in psychiatric crisis and had no way to defend themselves. Judge Boynton also ruled that Okah will be on the sex offender registry for life and can never work in the health care profession again or have unsupervised contact with vulnerable adults

The first incident (to which Okah plead guilty today) occurred in February 2018. Victim A was involuntarily committed for psychiatric care when Okah forced Victim A into vaginal intercourse in her room. The second incident (which was tried before a jury this week) occurred in June 2019. Victim B was involuntarily committed for psychiatric care when Okah entered her room and kissed her on the mouth, placed his mouth on her breast, and pressed his penis against her buttocks. Evidence of Okah’s DNA was later found around Victim B’s mouth and breast.
