A Jeffersonville woman was arrested Friday for allegedly sodomizing a 24-year-old mentally disabled man, according to a release from Attorney General Jack Conway's office.
Anne Marie Jones, 41, is charged with third-degree sodomy, a class D felony. She is being held in the Rowan County Detention Center.
Jones is a former employee of Community Alternatives of Kentucky in Morehead, a company that provides residential services to mentally disabled people. The abuse allegedly occurred at one of the company's facilities within the last month, the release said.
Jones resigned following a report of the alleged incident. Her arrest follows an investigation by the Attorney General's Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control.
