Los Angeles County Caretaker Found Guilty in Elder Abuse Case

OAKLAND – On April 6, 2022, the California Attorney General’s Office announced that a jury found Jose de Jesus Quiroz, a Los Angeles County certified nursing assistant and caretaker for elderly and dependent persons, guilty of sexually abusing an elderly dependent.  A Los Angeles County Superior Court jury found Quiroz guilty of two counts: one count of misdemeanor elder abuse and one count of felony sexual battery on an elderly or dependent adult.

In August 2018, Quiroz sexually abused one dependent resident after escorting her to the restroom. The criminal investigation into Quiroz was conducted by the Attorney General’s Division of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse (DMFEA) in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

“Special agents in the Attorney General’s Division of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse work to protect our senior citizens and investigate those who harm them whether it’s physical, emotional or financial.  Our elder population deserves our respect and proper care,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.

Sentencing in this case is scheduled for May 5, 2022 in the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
