GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The owner of a Gulfport nursing home is accused of doing business illegally. 44-year-old Greg Sullivan is owner of "A Connected Heart" on Vick Road.

The Mississippi Attorney General's office says this month the state charged Sullivan with operating an institution for the aged or infirmed without a license and six counts of neglect of a vulnerable adult.

The Attorney General alleges that Sullivan admitted a blind resident who needed daily insulin injections but failed to secure a licensed medical professional to monitor the dosage.

If convicted, the state officials say Sullivan could face up to a year in jail.

WLOX contacted Greg Sullivan by phone at his business and asked him if he was operating without a license. He refused to comment.
