Raul Salgadocastro, 40, an Anaheim caretaker, was immediately sentenced to six years in prison for raping a severely disabled longtime patient in an assisted living facility and videotaping the sexual assault, after pleading guilty.
Salgadocastro was arrested on his way to work in October on charges of allegedly raping the 45-year-old woman, for whom he had been a caregiver for nearly 20 years, according to the Anaheim police.
The unfortunate victim is “autistic, mentally retarded and is epileptic” and has the “mental capacity of a 3- to 4-year-old.” She is unable to communicate.
Police believe the sexual assault occurred in a live-in care facility in Anaheim on Oct. 7. They recovered a cellphone belonging to Salgadocastro that contained video footage of the attack.
When the suspect was questioned by police investigators he indicated he has an alcohol and drug problem. He also said that he has gone to work to take care of individuals while under the influence of both alcohol and drugs.
Salgadocastro pleaded guilty to a felony count of rape of an incompetent person,.
