David Moreno, Nursing Home Worker, Allegedly Assaulted 69 y.o. Woman Sexually

Talk about your sick fucks--excuse me--alleged sick fucks: assisted living and nursing home employee David Moreno is accused of sexually assaulting a 69-year-old disabled woman.

And, according to a release from the Orange County District Attorney's office (OCDA), law enforcement is reaching out to the public due to fears the Riverside 28-year-old preyed on others under his care.

From June 1-July 24, 2012, maintenance worker Moreno entered the woman's room at Emeritus Senior Living in Yorba Linda, where she was being treated for dementia, and sexually assaulted her, according to the OCDA.

He allegedly left behind physical evidence that helped Brea Police investigators take Moreno down. He is currently charged with one felony count each of sexual battery on an institutionalized victim and sexual penetration by foreign object of an incompetent victim.

Out of custody on $100,000 bail pending a July 10 hearing in Fullerton, Moreno could get eight years in state prison and a lifetime of sex offender registration with a conviction.

But those criminal counts, and potential time behind bars, would likely increase if he is convicted of crimes against others. Anyone who believes they have been a victim of Moreno is asked to contact Buena Park Brea Police Detective Dave Wearp at 714.671.4438 or Supervising District Attorney Investigator Anthony Sosnowski at 714.347.8794.

First thought - if the guy did what he is accused of, what a creep! Eeeuw.

Second thought - how odd that the OCDA would be enlisting the public's help in finding more victims in a case like this. Seems there is hardly a more finite pool of potential victims than in a nursing home, full of largely immobile people with fully known contact info - residents as well as relatives and visitors who might have seen something. Just exactly how is the 'public' going to be helpful here?

That, of course, leads a cynical peron to entertain the thought that the OCDA is seeking the public's help as a 'reason' to publicize this case on their web site and other sites to pick it up.. Seems like they have a mild obsession with registerable sex offenses. Could it be that they use this as a vehicle to publicize the ordinance prohibiting registered sex offenders from entering public areas, the ordinance that is always at the bottom of these types of press realeases? The ordinance that the DA created and got the County and half the cities to adopt? The one that just got called unconstitutional by a Superior Court? At least they adjusted the number of cities, as Lake Forest did the reasonable thing and repealed the ordinance a few weeks ago after being legally challenged on this.

None of this is to say that the allegation against the person in the article should not be prosecuted and he not be punished, if guilty, to the fullest extent, but this is just another instance of questionable priorities by the OCDA. YMMV.


If you INSIST on putting in your bullshit opinion, make sure you get your facts straight if you want to be taken seriously.

She is 69, get it straight if you're going to repeat her age multiple times. Also, BREA Police Department is handling this matter you DUMB FUCK. NOT Buena Park PD.
