BRONSON — Three people have been charged with mistreatment of a 51-year-old mentally handicapped man who was found malnourished and weighing between 80 to 100 pounds when found by deputies acting on an anonymous tip. One officer who saw the victim said he looked like a prisoner of war.
A Levy County Sheriff’s Office press release said the trio, who were his caretakers, has admitted to leaving the man handcuffed in a home on Mashburn Drive for up to four hours while they dined in a restaurant. The man said he was fed rice and beans and was always hungry.
