Cops: Nursing Aide Admitted Assaulting Patients, Said He Had A "Fetish For Older Females Under His Care"

A nursing aide charged with sexually assaulting multiple women in assisted living facilities told police that he had a “fetish for older females under his care,” according to Florida court records.

Falo Kane, 32, was arrested Monday on four counts of sexual battery of the physically helpless. He is locked up in lieu of $400,000 bond on the felony charges.

In a series of arrest affidavits, investigators accuse Kane of committing four separate assaults--two in 2016 and two this year. Pictured at right, Kane allegedly digitally penetrated victims, fondled their breasts, and sought to have them touch his penis or perform oral sex.

The victims in the two alleged 2019 assaults are wheelchair-bound.  

When questioned by police detectives, Kane reportedly confessed to the assaults, saying that he was sorry he "crossed the line" with elderly patients. Kane said that he had a "fetish for older females under his care," noted cops, who added that the defendant “wrote a generic apology letter to all of his victims.”  

Kane has been a licensed certified nursing assistant since October 2006, according to Florida Department of Health records which list no public complaints or disciplinary measures against Kane.

The alleged assaults took place at four different institutions in Pinellas County. Records show that Kane has also been employed, sometimes briefly, at other Florida rehab facilities.

Remarkably, Kane found employment this year with at least two facilities despite the fact that he was convicted 16 months ago of misdemeanor battery against a female hospital patient.

The victim in the 2018 case told police that Kane inappropriately massaged her arms, legs, and inner thighs, and came within inches of touching her genitals. When questioned by police, Kane acknowledged that the massage was not medically necessary, but claimed that he rubbed the woman “because I thought she would like it.”

Kane, who was fired from Mease Countryside Hospital after the incident, was eventually sentenced to 11 months probation on the misdemeanor conviction.

Kane’s rap sheet includes a 2009 conviction for passing bad checks and a 2014 collar for grand theft. In the latter case, Kane was admitted into a pretrial diversion program which he successfully completed. As a result, prosecutors dismissed the felony case in March 2016. Kane was arrested in May 2008 for domestic battery, but that case was later dropped by prosecutors.
