VISTA – A North County couple has pleaded guilty to elder abuse for leaving an 84-year-old man with Parkinson's disease in a van while they gambled at a casino.
The man's former caretaker, 49-year-old Tessie Magan, pleaded guilty to felony elder abuse Nov. 3 for her role in the Oct. 18 incident. Magan, who remains in custody at the Las Colinas Detention Facility in Santee, faces up to four years in prison.

Her husband, Donnie Magan, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor elder abuse. He is free on his own recognizance. According to court records, he faces up to a year in jail.
They are scheduled to be sentenced in Vista Superior Court Dec. 4.

Authorities said the couple took the 84-year-old Pacific Beach man to the Valley View Casino in Valley Center about 4 p.m. Oct. 18.

The man was found by a security guard about 5:30 p.m. in the van on the fifth floor of a six-level parking garage, authorities said.
When firefighters arrived, authorities said, they broke a window to rescue the man, who was unconscious.
