A licensed practical nurse in Phoenix, Arizona has been arrested on a charge of sexual assault in the impregnation of an incapacitated woman who gave birth last month at a long-term health care facility.
Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said Wednesday that investigators arrested 36-year-old Nathan Sutherland on one count of sexual assault and one count of vulnerable adult abuse.
Nathan worked at the Hacienda HealthCare facility where the woman lived and had been providing care to her.
The 29-year-old victim has been incapacitated since the age of 3 and gave birth to a boy at the facility on Dec. 29.
Employees say they didn't know the woman was pregnant. The CEO of Hacienda HealthCare has since resigned.
