PORT ORANGE, Fla. — Investigators say a nursing assistant admitted to sexually battering three elderly women, but Channel 9 learned that prosecutors dropped the charges against him.
Despite having been arrested on domestic battery and disorderly conduct charges, nursing assistant Joel Maldonado, 23, was able to get a job at Grace Manor in Port Orange.
Now, according to Port Orange Police, Maldonado has admitted to fondling three elderly patients who were suffering from dementia.
Channel 9's Tim Barber spoke to Joel Maldonado's brother, Elias Maldonado, on Tuesday.
"Do you think he is capable of doing something like this?" Barber asked.
"I have never seen it before," Elias Maldonado said. "Kind of came out of nowhere."
