Nurse arrested over Arizona care home patient pregnancy | Nathan Sutherland Sexually Abused Incapacitated Care Home Patient

A  nurse has been charged with rape after a severely disabled woman gave birth in care home in Arizona.

The 29-year-old victim stunned her caregivers and family when she gave birth to a baby boy late last month, sparking an investigation.

Nathan Sutherland, a 36-year-old licensed practical nurse, was arrested Wednesday on one count of sexual assault and one count of vulnerable adult abuse, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said.

Mr Sutherland was responsible for providing care to the victim during the time the assault occurred. He was arrested after his DNA was matched to that of the baby, Phoenix Police department said.

The 29-year-old victim, who police said “was not in a position to give consent”, has been in the care of the Hacienda Health Care facility in Phoenix, Arizona since the age of three.    The victim’s family described her as having “significant intellectual disabilities as a result of seizures very early in her childhood”.
