A Filipino domestic worker in Dubai was sentenced to three years in prison for sexually abusing her employer’s eight-year-old autistic son.

On July 11 at the Dubai Court of First Instance, the court heard that the 22-year-old domestic worker stood naked in front of her employer’s son and made him touch her inappropriately, Gulf News reported.

The boy’s mother noticed her son’s behavior had changed when he became aggressive and started to touch her inappropriately whenever she took him for a shower. Her Ethiopian maid claimed that the Filipino domestic worker had repeatedly sexually abused the boy, especially when his mother was abroad.

The employer reported the incident to the police and the Filipina was arrested.

On Wednesday, the domestic worker was convicted of sexually abusing the boy. The court sentenced her to three years in jail , after which she will be deported.
