Nursing Home Aide Receives Seven Year Prison Sentence For Sexually Abusing Resident

A former nurses aide has been sentenced to seven years in prison after being convicted of sexually abusing a nursing home resident. The victim who couldn't speak testified against the man by pointing to letters on a board to spell out words. The man, sentenced Wednesday, was convicted May 9 of sexual abuse and other charges.

The 61-year-old woman went to a nursing home after a stroke left her partially paralyzed. According to the district attorney's office, a nurse found the man sexually abusing the woman in her room after she managed to summon help with a call light. She testified through an interpreter who read aloud the words she spelled by pointing. For more, read the story.
