DANSVILLE, N.Y. (WHEC) — A home health care aide has been arrested in Livingston County.

The sheriff’s office says the victim, who is physically disabled, contacted them from Noyes Hospital in Dansville.

Deputies say 35-year-old Brandi Spearance didn’t give the victim the day-to-day care he needed this April and May—and that led to injuries.

Spearance was arrested earlier this month and charged with felony endangering the welfare of a physically disabled person in the first degree.

Spearance was turned over to the Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail where she was
processed and released with an appearance ticket as the charge does not qualify for bail under the New York State Justice Reform Act.

Spearance is scheduled to appear at West Sparta Town Court to answer the charges at a later date.
