A veteran politician in Pennsylvania politician has been busted after fondling the breasts of his own 104-year-old mother-in-law…and he did it more than once.
75-year-old William Spingler, on three occasions this month, is alleged to have groped the breasts of his mother-in-law in the Wayne Nursing Home in Delaware County.
He was first seen groping the victim, who suffers from dementia, on December 15th. An employee told officers that she’d spotted him touching the victim’s right breast and moving his hand “around her chest area in a manner that could not be misconstrued with anything else but inappropriate touching.”
Just two days later, he was seen doing it again. When he noticed someone watching him, “his face turned red and he immediately left the facility.” On December 23rd, an employee told cops that she saw him inappropriately touch the victim again.
The victim is “physically and mentally unable to defend herself” and is “completely dependent” upon staff for around-the-clock care, according to the complaint.
Mr. Spingler was charged with three counts of indecent assault on a person with a mental disability and was arraigned Friday. The charges, all misdemeanors, netted him $10,000 unsecured bail, which was paid, releasing him.
He’s been ordered to have no contact with the victim and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on January 5th.
