MILFORD – Two employees at Springbrook in Milford are facing felony charges after they allegedly took videos of residents without their knowledge, according to New York State Police.

Twenty-year-old Sharon McDowall and 22-year-old Julianne Carbone, both of Oneonta, are each charged with felony first-degree endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person and felony second-degree unlawful surveillance.

State police say they were contacted by Springbrook, an organization that provides services to disabled children and adults, regarding a complaint of inappropriate behavior. Investigators say McDowall and Carbone allegedly took inappropriate Snapchat videos of residents without their knowledge, and they continued doing it over a period of time.

McDowall was arrested March 19, arraigned and then sent to the Oneida County Jail on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.

Carbone was arrested March 20 and issued an appearance ticket for Oneonta court on March 27.
