Man pretending to be disabled ‘became sexually aroused by having nappy changed’

A man who pretended to be a disabled teenager to get his diaper changed has been charged with attempted human trafficking after reportedly trying to pull the stunt more than once.

Rutledge Deas IV, 31, of Metairie, Louisiana, allegedly faked being special needs and "tried to recruit the victim to solicit other baby sitters to care for him," police said.

Investigators found a text message in which Deas claimed to be involved in "alternative therapy" and offered to pay a nanny to change his adult diapers.

He was arrested at his home on Thursday and was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center after being charged with one count of attempted human trafficking, reports New York Post.

Investigators said he had previously been charged with 10 counts each of sexual battery and human trafficking after investigators found that he used social media ads to falsely lure in health care workers.

It was reported that he claimed that his 18-year-old brother "Cory" needed home care after describing him as "mentally and physically handicapped" in November 2019.

Authorities said that he then pretended to be "Cory" while "allowing the care provider to change his adult diaper and obtain sexual arousal under the false pretences of being handicapped".

But the victim had eventually become sceptical and realised that Deas had made his disabled brother up all along.

He pleaded guilty to the charges in December 2020 and was placed on probation.
