Aymee Matson, 25, is charged with five counts of false imprisonment, six counts of intentional abuse of a patient causing bodily harm and five counts of capturing an intimate representation.

The victim was a patient at an adult living facility where Matson was previously employed.

A status hearing was set for 9 a.m. on Oct. 22 in Judge Robert Repischak’s court.

Matson was arrested Jan. 11 after authorities were notified of a video that allegedly showed a woman abusing a person in her care.

The Racine County Sheriff’s Office investigated. A subsequent statement from the sheriff called the video “disturbing.”

The video purportedly shows Matson repeatedly kicking a male patient in his hand and head until he falls to the ground.

According to the statement, the man in the video was completely nude with his ankles bound.

After seeing the video, RCSO staff contacted management at the adult living facility, who were able to identify both the victim and the suspect in the video. The facility was not identified.

RCSO staff then conducted a welfare check on the male victim.

Allegedly, Matson admitted to both the assault and to placing the male victim in restraints, which was against company policy and procedure, according to the RCSO statement.

Matson allegedly told investigators she made the video and distributed it to show her friends that “her work is difficult and that she does not ‘sit on my butt all day.’ “
