LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A former Lufkin nursing home worker who assaulted an elderly patient is back in jail after allegedly committing probation violations.

The Angelina County Adult Probation Department requested the arrest of Telesforo Vasquez III after he committed multiple violations, according to Supervisor Dustin Fore.

Fore said the department is requesting his probation be revoked.

Vasquez accepted a 10-year probation sentence after pleading guilty in August to injury to a disabled person, following a Nov. 2010 arrest.

According to Lufkin Police, Vasquez exposed his genitals to a 91-year-old female resident of the Lufkin nursing home facility and directed her to touch his genitals. When the resident refused, Vasquez forced her down, causing injury to her hip and buttock area.

Fore said the official reason for the probation violation is he changed his address without notifying his officer. But that is just a minor offense to what will be on the motion to adjudicate guilty for Vasquez, Fore said. Fore said he could not comment on the motion until it is issued.
