The case of Rutledge Deas IV is one of the sickest things I've seen in my life. This 29 year old New Orleans man is accused of pretending to have Autism for sexual gratification.

Deas was arrested in New Orleans Thursday and charged with 10 counts of sexual battery, 10 counts of human trafficking, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Investigators believe that this Uptown man hired several babysitters for himself, then pretending to be severely autistic in order to have his diaper changed.

According to WDSU, Deas "...admitted to investigators he fraudulently portrayed himself as disabled to take advantage of the babysitters but denied he received sexual gratification from the diaper changes."   One of Deas victims has stepped forward, but he claims that three more.

He is in jail tonight as the investigation continues, his bond has been set at $1,503,000.
