Patient charged in nurse assault
A Stafford County man has been accused of sexually molesting a certified nursing assistant who came to his home earlier this month to provide medical support services.
Charles Henry Weaver, 62, is charged with aggravated sexual battery, abduction with the intent to defile and assault, court records show.
Weaver, who is already on the state police sex offender registry, is being held in the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
According to an affidavit for a search warrant filed in Stafford Circuit Court by Sheriff’s Office Detective Barry Surles, the 19-year-old victim was sent to Weaver’s home on Brooke Road on Aug. 15 by a home health care agency.
Shortly after entering the residence, the affidavit states, Weaver made comments about liking the woman’s hair color and lifted her nurse’s uniform to expose her torso area after asking her about tattoos.
The woman said she told Weaver his actions were inappropriate and were making her uncomfortable.
Later, court records state, Weaver walked away from the kitchen and told the woman he needed to show her something.
He lured her into a bedroom, then locked the door behind her, the affidavit states.
The woman said that Weaver, whom court records list at 310 pounds, then forced her onto his hospital bed and made a number of inappropriate touches.
She eventually got away from Weaver and reported the incident to her employer.
The woman was interviewed by Surles a couple of days later and told him she believes the incident was videotaped.
The search warrant gave police the authority to search the home and property for evidence.
Weaver was convicted of taking indecent liberties with a child on Aug. 10, 1994, in Prince William County. He has two subsequent convictions for failing to register as a sex offender, but he is currently registered.
A preliminary hearing for Weaver is scheduled for Oct. 15 in Stafford General District Court.
Weaver, who is represented by the Public Defender’s Office, has a bond hearing set for Wednesday.
