Editor's Note: All charges against Garry Balagot Nonog have been dismissed by the State of Florida.
A man who was contracted to paint a room for a Gainesville couple is in jail on charges he fondled the woman while she was having a seizure.
Garry Balagot Nonog, 43, was arrested Tuesday by the Gainesville Police Department on a charge of attempted sexual battery on a person over the age of 12 who was physically helpless.
Officer James Franklin said Nonog had known the victim for about four years when he went to her home earlier this month to paint a room. The victim's husband told police he confronted Nonog about the incident and Nonog confessed and apologized.
Nonog was booked into the Alachua County jail.
