(Scroll down for video) A young child of South Carolina, who had suffered a lot of abuse since birth, was victimized once again.

According to court records, the 2-year-old girl was placed in foster care after she was abused by her father so badly that she was left paralyzed.

The child suffered many injuries due to her father’s abuse and she is unable to move or speak. She was placed with a foster family who hired a nurse to help care for the little girl.

Sadly, the innocent child was hurt again by her nurse, Peggy Louise Atkins, who was caught sexually abusing the girl.

Police in Simpsonville, said that the girl’s foster mother walked into a room to find that the nurse had the child in an sexual position.

The foster mother called police and the elderly nurse was arrested and charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

“Atkins willfully commit lewd or lascivious act upon a 2-year-old female victim with the intent of arousing, appealing to, or gratifying the lust, passions, or sexual desires of the defendant,” the arrest warrant states.

Atkins is being held in the Greenville County Detention Center without bond.
