Sierra Chaffin Facebook
Bradenton, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Sierra Chaffin, a 22-year-old Florida woman was jailed Monday after she allegedly assaulted her 74-year-old live-in boyfriend during a confrontation at his Bradenton home.
According to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, Chaffin was moving her possessions out of her elderly boyfriend's home when the couple began to argue.
Investigators say Chaffin became violent during the dispute - shoving 74-year-old Marcos Beita in the chest, well aware that he had recently had open heart surgery.
Beita's physical therapist and cook, identified only as 'Melissa', told deputies that she was preparing lunch when she heard a knock at the door.
When Beita opened the door, Chaffin was waiting outside and asked him to step outside with her. That's when Chaffin allegedly blocked the doorway and refused to allow Beita back inside his home. When Beita attempted to move around her, Chaffin reportedly shoved him back off the steps, causing him to collapse on the ground,
The couple had been involved in an intimate and sexual relationship, according to an arrest affidavit.
Chaffin was booked into the Manatee County Jail and charged with domestic batter on a person 65 years of age or older. She was released after posting $5,000 bond.
Chaffin has an active criminal history that includes marijuana possession, possession of a controlled substance, tampering with evidence, contempt of court, theft, driving on a suspended driver's license, battery and possession of drug paraphernalia.
This story is very similar to a Weekly Vice story published in May 2010, involving a 28-year-old woman who moved in with her 77-year-old boyfriend.
Kristina Pongractz was charged with murder after she beat her ailing boyfriend with his own cane. She was sentenced to 15 years in prison and won't be eligible for parole until her early 40's.
Oh, and I have to wonder.... Does having a girlfriend with another man's name tattooed on her stomach cancel out the benefits of Viagra for an older man?
I hope I'll never have to know.
