CARMICHAEL (CBS13) — The Sacramento County District Attorney has dropped charges against a local stripper accused of elderly abuse.
Sabrina Kohler and Joseph Michael Dormishev were arrested in Sacramento on Monday. Both were charged with abusing an elderly man in Dormishev’s care.
Investigators said the 84-year-old man was denied food, water, and forced to live in his own filth in a Carmichael home.
Detectives say the man managed to activate a medical alert button after sitting an entire day in his own feces. The responding fire department called police, who arrested Kohler and Dormishev.

LINCOLN COUNTY  Brian Robinson's 70-year-old mother used to have a little red Ford Mustang, a townhouse and a retirement account.
Now, Deputy Lancaster County Attorney Ryan Mick said, the car is sold. The townhouse, too. And she worries about how she'll afford retirement.
Mick said Robinson and his now ex-wife, Carla Robinson of Benkelman, used his mother "basically as a piggy bank" after she gave them her power of attorney. In two years, they spent more than $150,000 of her money, buying a motorcycle, tanning and cosmetic surgery, even settling their divorce.
