Nursing Home Aide Charged With Sexual Assault of Resident After DNA Test

An nursing home aide has been charged with sexual assault of a resident after the resident presented police with DNA evidence on a napkin. According to police, the 68-year-old female resident is confined to a wheelchair and requires assistance with activities of daily living, including bathing.

Investigators say the woman told police that she had been attacked several times by the employee and presented them with the napkin for DNA testing. The test was completed and the employee arrested last week after DNA results confirmed the man had sexual contact with the woman.

When confronted with the allegations, the employee told police that the sexual contact was consensual. The employee has been suspended and is being held in jail on $50,000 bond. For more, read the story.
