A female caregiver was arrested today and charged with sexually assaulting a 106-year-old woman in her care, according to cops.
Taquita Lashay Watson, 29, had been providing in-home care to the bedridden victim, according to the Pensacola Police Department. Investigators determined that Watson last month had “used a sexual instrument” on the elderly woman.
Watson, pictured in the mug shot at right, was charged with sexual assault and booked into the Escambia County jail in lieu of $25,000 bond. A police report lists her employer as Interim HealthCare in Pensacola.
According to a police statement, the investigation of Watson–who has worked as a caretaker for the elderly for eight years–is continuing “to determine if anyone else may have been victimized.”
