WASHINGTON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A woman, being sought on felony elderly neglect charges by Washington County Sheriff’s Office, was apprehended early Wednesday morning.
Just after 6 a.m., November 7, 46-year-old
Stephanie Hutchinson of Bonifay, FL, was located in Bay County and taken
into custody on two active felony warrants.
At the request of healthcare personnel,
WCSO deputies responded to a welfare check on Johnson Road in September
of 2018. The elderly victim was found to be in poor health and covered
in feces and urine upon arrival.
During the investigation, Hutchinson was named as the legal caregiver of the victim and an arrest warrant was obtained.
Hutchinson, who has been booked on one
count of neglect of an elderly person and the outstanding warrant for
violation of probation, was placed on probation in 2017 following an
arrest for selling methamphetamine.
