Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - According to the Orange County District Attorney’s O(OCDA) office, Richard Alan Nolan, a male nurse was convicted today of sexually assaulting two male patients who were medically incapacitated and another male patient under the guise of a medical exam.
Nolan was a licensed vocational nurse at the Western Medical Center in Anaheim for approximately five years before the sexual assaults.
In December 2009, Nolan was attending John Doe #3, who was asleep, and forcibly assaulted the victim. On June 9, 2009, John Doe #1 was sedated in a hospital bed when Nolan entered the victim's room and forcibly assaulted him. John Doe #3 and John Doe #1 were both restrained in a hospital bed due to a medical condition and were unable to resist the sexual assault.
On July 29, 2010, Nolan was attending John Doe #2. Nolan fraudulently represented himself as the doctor and sexually assaulted the victim under the false pretense of performing an examination with no legitimate medical purpose
Nolan's mandatory lifetime sex offender registration will bar him from entering County recreational areas and City parks which have passed the Sex Offender Ordinance.
