Nurse arrested for allegedly raping helpless Hacienda woman

Nurse arrested for allegedly raping helpless Hacienda woman

According to Fox News, the 29-year-old victim was placed in long-term care at three-years-old after a near-drowning incident that left her with severe intellectual and mobility disabilities as well as the inability to speak.

Her parents, who also can't be identified, said: "She has feelings, likes to be read to, enjoys soft music and is capable of responding to people she is familiar with, especially family".

The news of his arrest shook her, she told ABC 15.

"I'm so conflicted, just horribly conflicted". I think he is a coward.

"He was very loving, very compassionate", Angela Gomez, whose son was cared for by Sutherland, told KPHO-TV.

On Wednesday, cops arrested Sutherland after they said his court-ordered DNA test matched a baby boy born to a 29-year-old incapacitated woman at the health care facility on December 29. He was arrested after being charged with one count of vulnerable adult abuse and one count of sexual assault. Sutherland has since been released on a $500,000 cash only bond. Sutherland said his mother could not look after her children as a result of the split.

"He's afraid. Not all the time but every once in a while, and he's expressed that", Gomez said about her son. While speaking to the Associated Press, one of the Sutherland family's neighbors, Esella Burr, said, "I can't believe it".

The attorney for the nurse accused of sexually assaulting an incapacitated woman at an Arizona healthcare facility, where he was responsible for her care, claimed in court there was no proof his client did anything wrong.

The surprise birth late last month triggered reviews by state agencies, highlighted safety concerns for patients who are severely disabled or incapacitated and led to disciplinary actions and resignations of staffers and managers.

He was set to be charged with one count of sexual assault and one count of vulnerable adult abuse, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said. "From the minute we first became aware of this crime we have worked virtually nonstop trying to solve and resolve this case".

The investigation was, and still is, the highest priority of our police department.
He apparently has lived in Arizona since 1993.

Sutherland voluntarily surrendered his nursing license Thursday, according to paperwork filed with the Arizona Board of Nursing. The academy is now closed. He has worked at the facility since 2011.

Hacienda officials didn't immediately return a request for comment.

He wanted "to attend more AZ state board of nursing meetings and to continue leadership classes", he wrote.

Days before, on Wednesday, the defense attorney for Sutherland said there is "no direct evidence" his client is to blame.

In a biography for their Christian rap duo, Sleeplessouljaz, Sutherland and his sister described growing up in poverty and an abrupt transition to life in America after being adopted. But it's unclear if they ever had more than marginal success. "Even though it's an orphanage, you'll be blessed if you have one cup or bowl of rice a day". They have never from the birth canal to now have never had anything handed over to them on a silver platter.
