An Arizona man has been arrested on suspicion of pretending to have Down syndrome. What was his motivation for faking the disorder?
Paul Anthony Menchaca pretended to have Down's so he could hire caretakers to bathe him and change his diapers.
One care worker told ABC 15: "He needed shower and grooming, he couldn't use the bathroom himself, he couldn't really be alone by himself.”
According to court documents seen by AZ Family, the same care worker recalled at least five separate occasions where Menchaca “aggressively said his genitals were not cleaned enough.”
What would be the appropriate punishment for someone that his this depraved? Have you ever known anybody who faked a severe illness?
