Walnut Creek: Elder care worker convicted of raping dementia patient

Published Thursday March 9

MARTINEZ — A man who had been working the night shift at a Walnut Creek elder care home was convicted Thu of raping an 83-year-old woman who suffers from dementia.

Emeterio Ticar Betiwan, 61, was convicted of one count of raping a mentally disabled person, one count of a lewd or lascivious act against a dependent person and one count of elder abuse.

It was proven, through DNA evidence, that Betiwan had sex with the woman, who this newspaper is not naming. The person family has sued Diablo Assisted Living, where the incident took place.

“Trials often get heated. It’s nothing personal,” Miller said. “It is a hard fought case and a challenging emotional issue.”
