A 29-year-old New Orleans man faces sexual battery and human trafficking charges after a home health care worker tipped off Louisiana State Police.

According to investigators, Rutledge "Rory" Deas used social media to advertise for a home health care provider for his 18-year-old mentally and physically handicapped brother, Cory. 

"Upon arranging for a home health care provider, Deas would then pose as 'Cory' while allowing the care provider to change his adult diaper and obtain sexual arousal under the false pretenses of being handicapped," said Louisiana Sate Police spokesman Trooper Monroe Dillon.

After providing home health care services at least ten times for "Cory," police say the worker became suspicious and later discovered "Cory" was, in fact, Rutledge "Rory" Deas pretending to be his fictitious, disabled brother.

State police investigators obtained a warrant for Deas' arrest and took him into custody at his New Orleans residence Wednesday without incident. He is charged with 10 counts of sexual battery and human trafficking (labor) and one count of drug possession.

State police say if anyone else suspects Deas duped them to call LSP detectives at (504) 310-7000.
