Felony Elder Abuse - Felony Elder Neglect
An Apopka High School employee has been arrested on a felony elder-abuse charge after her 80-something-year-old mother was found living in filth with nothing to eat, Apopka Police said.
Rhonda Lee Miller, 39, was already serving probation for felony charges of check fraud and grand theft when officers were called Saturday to the Crosby Motor Inn in Apopka, where Miller's mother had been living since December.

Deputy District Attorney Paul Greenwood says video from 2011 shows the men engaging in repeated sex acts near a then-98-year-old woman they were caring for. In one instance, a nurse appears to place his crotch on the woman's hand.
