A 63-year-old Dayton Beach, Florida caregiver, was placed on administrative leave and arrested for physically and verbally abusing a 12-year-old diagnosed with COACH syndrome. The security camera placed in the child’s room by his mother shows the caregiver slapping, kicking, and striking the boy on more than one occasion.
Caregiver Stood by the COACH Syndrome Child’s Bedside for Three Years
Last week, the Florida authorities arrested 63-year-old Julie Carter, a registered caregiver and charged her with battery and child abuse. The woman has been accused of abusing a 12-year-old with a genetic disorder while his mother was away at work.
Based on the police report, Carter took care of the child for the past three years, but no one could suspect that the Maxim Health Care employee had an appalling attitude toward her charged.
According to the boy’s mother, Carter was employed to supervise her son Tuesday through Friday each week. The child being diagnosed with COACH Syndrome, he required around-the-clock supervision, as he isn’t capable of feeding himself nor use the restroom. More than that, the woman’s 12-year-old child can’t talk.
Being a cautious mother, the woman mounted a hidden security camera in the boy’s bedroom to check up on him from time to time.
After reviewing last week’s recordings, the woman discovered that Carter was physically abusing her son. The investigators declared that the Dayton Beach caregiver slapped, kicked, and stroke they boy on more than one occasion.
Moreover, the recordings also revealed that the woman even hit the sack ignoring that the boy fell on the floor and couldn’t get up.
After being confronted with the allegations, the registered caregiver blatantly declared that her charge was difficult and that was the only way she could make him behave. Carter was charged with child abuse and battery.
