VINEYARD — CBS Sacramento on Monday obtained information on a Sacramento County caregiver who authorities say was caught receiving oral sex from a developmentally disabled patient who is incapable of giving legal consent.

Douglas Alan Monday, 65, was arrested in the parking lot of a Vineyard-area orthodontist on Vintage Park Drive back on October 12, 2023, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office and a complaint obtained from the county District Attorney's Office. CBS Sacramento was just tipped off about it on Monday.

Monday was waiting in the vehicle with the 38-year-old patient while another patient he had driven to the business was in an appointment, authorities said. During that time, a witness called 911 after seeing a seemingly young girl performing oral sex on Monday in the vehicle.

Monday and the victim were still inside the vehicle when sheriff's deputies arrived and arrested him. According to the complaint, the 38-year-old victim could not have given consent "because of a mental disorder or developmental or physical disability" and Monday would have been aware of that.

Sgt. Amar Gandhi, a spokesperson for the sheriff's office, confirmed Monday was the owner of a home care facility and that there may have been other victims.

On Tuesday, the California Department of Social Services confirmed Monday and his wife, Debbie Monday, ran Doug and Debbie Monday's Carehome, which has since closed. The department said it served a temporary suspension order on October 23, 2023, and that all clients at the facility were relocated to other licensed care facilities the same day.

The facility's license was later revoked on November 20, 2023. Additionally, Doug Monday's administrator certificate was revoked for life, while Debbie Monday's certificate was revoked for two years. She is not facing any charges related to this investigation.

Douglas Monday is set to appear in Sacramento County court on July 16 for a trial readiness hearing ahead of a projected July 29 trial start date. He was charged with one count of oral copulation with a disabled person who could not provide consent.

He had bail set at $150,000 and posted it for release the day after his arrest.
