TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Tucson man has been convicted of abusing his elderly father while the dad was living in a senior living facility.

Pima County prosecutors say Aaron Gallego Rodriguez was accused of whipping his 82-year-old father with a cord, which cut and bruised his face, arms, back, chest and legs.

He also allegedly stole his father’s credit card and attempted to withdraw money at several ATMs.

Rodriguez was convicted of vulnerable adult abuse, domestic violence and aggravated assault, temporary/substantial disfigurement and theft of a credit card.

The Arizona Daily Star says Rodriguez is scheduled to be sentenced on March 18.
