Two US-based Filipino nurses have been sentenced to spend several months in jail for performing sexual acts with each other in front of their 98-year-old female charge in 2011
Two male nurses who engaged in sex acts in front of a 98-year-old female stroke victim they were supposed to be monitoring were sentenced Tuesday to 325 and 365 days in jail, respectively.
The two were also sentenced to the maximum custody under a plea bargain and probation for five years, the report added.
Ruiz and Torralba were caught committing 50 incidents of neglect on home surveillance video over a three-week period in 2011, which led to judges barring the nurses from seeking employment as caregivers.
Times of San Diego quoted Ruiz’s attorney, Dan Greene, as saying that the nurse had admitted that he is ashamed of his conduct.
Ariela Deicas, the victim’s granddaughter, castigated the two men for mocking their profession and tearing their family “apart emotionally”.
A report on UT San Diego said the victim’s grandson, Eduardo Deicas, found the pair’s sentence unsatisfactory and was convinced that the two “should rot in jail.”
