Medical Technician Arrested for Alleged Sexual Battery

A medical technician was arrested Monday after a 12 & 12 female patient told a staff member that he had entered her room and touched her inappropriately on April 5.

Stafeno Wartson, 42, was arrested for sexual battery and failure to register as a sex offender.

The victim said she rebuffed his alleged advances, but Wartson continued to touch her.

12 & 12, located at 6333 East Skelly Drive, is a center for addiction treatment and recovery.

After the allegations were made, Wartson was sent home.

Wartson is being held on $14,000 bond.
