PARAMEDIC ACCUSED OF FONDLING SICK GIRL
Jarvis Battiest, a 35 year old emergency room paramedic, has been accused of molesting a 13 year old girl with multiple sclerosis at Children's Memorial Hospital. Battiest, of Chicago, was charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse and was being held in Cook County Jail on $250,000 bail Wednesday. The victim came to the hospital on May 17 and Battiest was transferring her to radiology when he allegedly made suggestive remarks, telling her she was pretty and appeared older than her age. Later, he allegedly went into the girl's room and massaged her breasts and buttocks, and told her he got a feeling in his stomach when he was around her.
