Woman sentenced for beating elderly man

Local News

Five years in prison is what a woman was sentenced to Friday morning in 30th District Court for beating an elderly disabled man in a wheelchair after he urinated on the floor. 

Josie Lee Escobedo, 59, was arrested in June after a man told police his 74-year-old uncle, who is in a wheelchair, had been beaten by Escobedo.

The man says Escobedo sent him messages saying something happened and he thought she was under the influence of narcotics. He says she eventually told him to go to his uncle’s residence where he found the victim lying on the floor bleeding from his face.

The man also says Escobedo told him his uncle had urinated on the floor and she was so mad she beat him.

Escobedo was booked into jail after her sentencing.
