Employees at the Wayne Center nursing home told police they saw Spingler, of Paoli, touching the woman inappropriately on three occasions this month, according to WPVI-TV.
The woman is Spingler’s mother-in-law from a previous marriage. She suffers from dementia and needs 24-hour care, according to a criminal complaint obtained by The Smoking Gun.
A nursing home employee told police she saw Spingler on Dec. 15 touching the woman’s right breast and moving his hand “around her chest area in a manner that could not be misconstrued with anything else but inappropriate touching.”
Spingler reportedly returned to the nursing home two days later and groped the woman again, according to a nursing home worker.
When Spingler realized he was being watched, “his face turned red and he immediately left the facility,” the criminal complaint says, according to The Smoking Gun. He returned Dec. 23, and allegedly touched his victim once again, according to police.
