BROOMFIELD, Colorado — A jury has convicted a former nursing assistant accused of sexually assaulting two patients at a Broomfield nursing home where he worked.
The Broomfield Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/1quluQF ) Antonio Nieto was convicted Friday of four counts of sexual assault on an at-risk victim and one count of unlawful sexual contact on an at-risk victim. He is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 15.
Prosecutors say Nieto sexually assaulted a 59-year-old and a 73-year-old while he worked at Broomfield Skilled Nursing. The victims said Nieto sexually assaulted them while he was assigned to their care.
Lawyers also looked into whether a possible third victim, a 93-year-old woman, would be part of the trial, but they agreed there wasn't enough evidence to include her in the case.
