A Brookhaven man has been arrested for fondling a vulnerable adult following his indictment by a Lincoln County grand jury, said Attorney General Jim Hood.
James Henry Cason, 63, turned himself in last week. He is charged with one count of fondling of a vulnerable person. Cason was booked into the Lincoln County jail with a bond set at $50,000.
The indictment accuses Cason of touching the buttocks of a resident for the purpose of gratifying his lust while working as a volunteer at a nursing center in Brookhaven. If convicted, Cason faces up to 15 years and up to $5,000 in fines.
The case is being investigated by John David Flowers and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Katie Moulds of the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
