An elderly man was recently arrested after a reported incident in a retail store. According to authorities, the 75 year-old man was observed touching a minor in an inappropriate manner in a Georgia Wal-Mart. The action was reported by the child's mother, who was nearby and reportedly witnessed the incident. The man was arrested soon thereafter, charged with child molestation, and is being held without bond.
The man's adult children, a son and daughter, attended his bond hearing and informed the judge that the man suffers from several physical ailments, including Alzheimer's Disease. Further investigation revealed that the man was arrested in 2011 upon a similar complaint and had been released by authorities on the contingency that he would not be allowed to frequent areas in which children might be present unless he was supervised.
