A former emergency room employee at the Logan Regional Hospital was sentenced to prison earlier this week for sexually assaulting a patient. The victim was brought into the ER by police after he was stopped for a public intoxication offense. Police had handcuffed the man and while officers were filling out paperwork, the ER tech began performing oral sex on the victim until officers came back and caught him. Earlier this year the ER tech pled guilty to a first degree felony charge of forcible sodomy and this week he was sentenced to five years to life in prison.
