Families Shocked Over Center's Decertification

Shock and anguish Thursday night for the families of those being cared for at the Sonoma Developmental Center. It provides care and assistance to hundreds of patients with intellectual challenges. In a surprise decision that we broke Wednesday -- regulators are yanking the facility's license.
The center has had a troubling history of reported abuses and poor investigations by its police force. And now, the Department of Public Health has moved to shut down a major portion of the center -- the program that cares for patients with severe disabilities who aren't bedridden but live on the premises.
