Comments Investigation:
    •   On the victim reported that was assaulted by a home
health care worker employee by Miles Residential Care. As a result of my criminal
investigation, I am unable to prove that the health care worker assaulted
stated that was employed by Miles Residential Care to give in
home care. lives at stated that after the
incident, did not return to home and now works at the residential care center
located at 490 Koon Store Rd. A criminal history check of shows that has a
conviction for child neglect under the alias
has a drug conviction for possession of
marijuana 1oz or less or 10g or less of hash or cocaine in
Section 300 of DHEC Standards for Licensing In-Home Care providers (61-122) states that
an employee with convictions for abuse/neglect and/or drug related convictions within the
past 10 years is a violation. The owner of Miles Residential Care is Betty Miles. It is
unsure if Miles conducted a criminal history check on continues to work
for Miles at this time. There are concerns that due to past conviction for
abuse/neglect and behavior towards should not be employed in the
capacity of providing care to those who are vulnerable. DSS case worker
also responded to home on in reference to an investigation. When I
asked what the investigation was in relation to, informed me that it was
confidential even though I am law enforcement.
