Caretaker accused of torture of disabled woman


A former caretaker has been charged with torture for pouring boiling water on a disabled woman.

17 News first reported on this story in May. 

Essence Perkins, who was diagnosed with several mental disorders, was allegedly abused by her caretakers from the company Aimes.

Court documents say one caretaker, Gabriel Monsibais, admitted to investigators that in 2016, he not only poured hot water on Perkins’ back, but also beat her to keep her in control.

Monsibais faces three felony charges including torture and assault and is due back in court in September.
