Seminole man accused of neglecting elderly woman in his care

Pinellas deputies arrested a man this week they said neglected an elderly woman who was in his care.

Timothy Giguere, 62, of Seminole, faces a charge of abuse/neglect of an aged or disabled person.

The victim is an 87-year-old woman, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said Monday.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Marianne Pasha said staff at Largo Medical Center called authorities after Giguere took the woman there Sunday. He said she had become ill at home.

According to an arrest affidavit, the woman was extremely dehydrated, malnourished and had sores on her body.

"This condition did not develop overnight," Pasha said. "By the time she was taken to the hospital she was in desperate shape."

Authorities are not disclosing the relationship between Giguere and the woman to protect her identity.

Pasha said Guigere, arrested after an interview with deputies Sunday, is not a professional health worker and does not have a job.

He was in the Pinellas County Jail on Monday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
