Former nursing home employee indicted on charges he tried to sexually assault patient
SUMTER, S.C. (WIS) - A former nursing home employee has been indicted by the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
Towodi Shequoyah, 37, is accused of exposing himself to a nursing home resident and trying to sexually assault the victim. This happened at Blue Ridge of Sumter, officials confirmed.
Officials say another employee saw Shequoyah in a 73-year-old woman’s room with his pants down.
He was arrested in February 2021 and has been in jail ever since because a judge denied his bond.
In July he was indicted on two charges: attempt to commit abuse of a vulnerable adult and attempt to commit criminal sexual conduct, third-degree.
Shequoyah could face up to 15 years in prison if found guilty.
