HICKORY HILLS, IL — This is 52-year old Crispiniana Domingo at her Thanksgiving celebration last Friday, after she was found not guilty of aggravated battery charges, for allegedly attacking an 8-month-old patient in University of Illinois Hospital in 2016.
The court trial that took almost two years finally came to an end on February 26th, and the Fil-Am nurse says her happiness is indescribable.
“Para akong nabunutan ng malaking tinik at first time nang makahinga ng maganda.”
Domingo, who has been a nurse for UIC hospital for 16 years, says spending several days in jail was a living hell.
“Truth always prevails. My faith became strong and deeper. God is the only solution and answer to everything.”
Domingo, who is very active in the Filipino community and in church, has a strong support system of friends and family who helped her through this tough time.
Domingo says she does not have any plans of going back to work as a nurse, but wants to continue to help others in a different way — as a missionary.
