MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A certified nursing assistant has been accused of sexually assaulting an elderly person at an Alabama nursing home.

AL.com reports a Florence police statement says 21-year-old Zachariah Lee Reeves was arrested Wednesday on charges of first-degree sodomy and second-degree elder abuse.

Police Sgt. Greg Cobb says Reeves is a CNA at Mitchell-Hollingsworth Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Cobb says Reeves was working when the victim was assaulted Nov. 2.

Reeves is being held in the Lauderdale County Detention Center with bail set at $60,000. It is unclear if Reeves has an attorney.

Further details have not been released.

If convicted, Reeves faces up to life in prison and would be required to register as a sex offender.
