After he was charged with sexual assault, the 32-year-old paramedic had only five words to excuse his behavior: “Sorry man, I had to.” The Sacramento, California paramedic took the opportunity to reach out and touch the temporarily disabled young woman while she was having a seizure in the back of his ambulance. Because she needed to be rushed to the hospital, she and her family put their trust in paramedic Jared Evans – and he violated their trust…
For the last two years, 32-year-old paramedic Jared Evans has been employed by the Sacramento Fire Department. But now that he has revealed his true colors, it goes without saying that there might be dozens of other women he sexually abused while immobilizing in the back of his ambulance.
Evans was not alone when he touched the teenager. A paramedic intern was on duty with Evans and was horrified to witness Evans touching the victim. The intern reported the abuse to the supervisor on April 16 although the incident had happened a couple weeks before on April 1.
Evans allegedly stuck his hands underneath the teen’s shirt. Then he pulled her breast out from her shirt. She was strapped to a gurney and “completely unresponsive to pain and verbal commands, she was out.”
After he abused the girl, he put her back in place and turned to the intern with a lustful grin and said, “Sorry man, I had to.”
Although she was completely immobilized, she later told the police that she was able to hear and feel what happened. According to court documents, the teen heard Evans talk about her “large breast” and could feel him exposing her for his enjoyment.
The teen could not see who committed the crime. But she knew his voice.
Evans has been accused of touching the woman without her consent “for the specific purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification or sexual abuse.”
When first questioned by police on April 28, Evans denied discussing the young woman’s chest and touching them.
The paramedic intern reported the truth because “it was the right thing to do,” but the loyal paramedic thinks Evans “deserves a fair trial.”
“When these allegations were brought to the attention of fire administration, we immediately notified the office of public safety and accountability and requested a full law enforcement investigation,” Sacramento Fire Chief Walt White said during a press conference.
On Monday, an arrest warrant went out for Jared Evans. Instead of running from the police, he turned himself into the authorities and complied with their requests. He has since been charged with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery – and was released on $3,000 bail. It is unclear if he has committed this crime before or if it is an isolated incident.
Ever since the crime was reported, Evans was placed on administrative leave on April 21. He will be unemployed until his trial in court on September 26. He probably won’t be working as a paramedic ever again given that he touches the people who need him most.
