Caregiver Sentenced in Elder Abuse Case


Caregiver sentenced in elder abuse case

EL CAJON — A caregiver accused of taking money from a 93-year-old Pearl Harbor survivor and letting him live in squalor was sentenced Thursday to two years in custody, according to 10News, a media partner of U-T San Diego.
Milagros Angeles, 63, will be allowed to serve that time in local jail instead of prison. She pleaded guilty last month in El Cajon Superior Court to false imprisonment of an elder and forgery, both felonies.
Originally, Angeles faced four felony charges after her January 2011 arrest, when authorities found Arnold V. “Max” Bauer living amid rat droppings and rotting food. Charges of elder abuse with great bodily injury and theft from an elder were dropped in light of her plea.
Bauer, a former Navy machinist, was suffering from a urinary tract infection, dehydration and prostate cancer when authorities found him last year. In November, he died at age 94 at a Chula Vista rest home.
Deputy District Attorney Claudia Grasso said previously that Bauer died of pneumonia, which had nothing to do with his care.
Angeles, who had worked for Bauer since 2009, has already served more than a year in jail, which will count toward her sentence.
