Convicted Felon Arrested After Posing As a Care Attendant to Have Sex With Disabled Woman

According to court records, a felon who posed as a care attendant slipped past security at a care center and had sex numerous times with a brain damaged patient. The 42-year-old man has now been charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. He remains jailed on $200,000 bail.

The victim’s mother told police that security guards had seen the pair enter dressing rooms at the facility together many times in recent months and did nothing because they thought he was her aide. The victim, who suffers from a rare brain disease, has the cognitive ability of a fourth-grader, her mother says.

The criminal complaint states that the suspect first met the victim when she was at the mall with her mother. The two developed a relationship. Last month when the victim's mother was dropping her daughter off for treatment at the facility, she learned of the man's many visits to the facility where he posed as her care attendant.

When interviewed by police, the victim said that the man had sex with her at the mall, many times at the facility, and at her home.  The suspect's criminal history includes a 2011 conviction for failure to register as a predatory offender. He has also been convicted of disorderly conduct, illegal weapon possession, and second-degree assault. For more, read the story.
