Report: Seminole man allowed elderly woman to urinate and defecate on herself

A Seminole man watched an elderly woman sit in her own waste and did nothing to help, Pinellas County Sheriff's officials say.

According to an arrest affidavit, William S. Mills "willfully and by negligence allowed a female to sit on a couch while she urinated and defecated on herself."

The woman, whose name was redacted from the report, had such severe skin breakdown and bedsores that she required hospitalization.

The complaint does not indicate how long the abuse took place, where the victim was being treated or how the sheriff's office learned of the neglect.

Mills, 46, was arrested at 10 p.m. Saturday and placed in the Pinellas County Jail, where he remained Sunday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
