Caregiver Charged with Rape at Home Healthcare Facility

Caregiver Charged with Rape at Home Healthcare Facility

A caregiver at an undisclosed home healthcare company has been charged with sexually assaulting a woman under his care, according to the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office. The supervisor at the healthcare company contacted authorities after the victim reported the assault.

The victim, who required around-the-clock care due to her inability to care for herself, was found to have been sexually assaulted. Authorities located the suspect, Ronald Pace, and brought him in for questioning. As a result of their investigation, Pace has been charged with two counts of rape, which is a first-degree felony.

The seriousness of this incident is evident in the high bond amount set for Pace, who is currently being held at the Scioto County jail on a $200,000 bond. This case highlights the vulnerability of those who depend on caregivers for their well-being and the importance of thorough background checks and vigilant supervision in the home healthcare industry.

Rape is a heinous crime that involves non-consensual sexual activity. It is a first-degree felony in many jurisdictions, including Ohio, where this incident took place. Home healthcare companies are responsible for ensuring the safety and well-being of their clients, and any allegations of abuse or assault should be treated with the utmost seriousness.
