Arizona governor urges new leaders at facility after rape

Arizona governor urges new leaders at facility after rape

Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams announces the arrest of Nathan Sutherland, a licensed practical nurse, on one count of sexual assault and one count of vulnerable adult abuse on an incapacitated woman who gave birth last month at a long-term health care facility in Phoenix, Sutherland, on January 23, 2019.

PEOPLE confirmed the judge denied Gregan's request to reduce Sutherland's $500,000 cash-only bond, and he remains in Maricopa County jail. 'I know at this point there's DNA.

Gregan did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

Nathan Sutherland, 36, appeared in court Wednesday after being charged with sexual assault and abusing a vulnerable adult. They believe Sutherland raped the patient sometime between February and April.

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. "And I really trusted him", Angela Gomez said of the suspect, Nathan Sutherland.

Nathan Sutherland, 36, was arrested by investigators who linked him to the case through DNA evidence after the woman, who is in her 20s, unexpectedly gave birth on December 29 at Hacienda Healthcare Skilled Nursing Facility in Phoenix.

That image is at odds with the man Phoenix police and prosecutors have presented to the world: the Hacienda HealthCare nurse who sexually assaulted his incapacitated patient and, a few days after Christmas, became the father of her child. He also mentioned that he liked his job as a nurse.

Hacienda officials said Sutherland, who was sacked by the company, passed an extensive background check and they are "troubled beyond words".

The videos give a glimpse into Sutherland's background and history.

Court records indicate his wife filed for divorce seven weeks ago.

Jeff Bridges hypes new 'Big Lebowski' project: sequel or Super Bowl ad?
The Big Lebowski , one of the most adored movies of the a generation, had the 20th anniversary of its release this year. Here we see an older, but still abiding Dude in a very brief snippet of footage.

A bio for the group says they were adopted by an American couple from a Haitian orphanage in 1989, when Sutherland was 7 and his sister was 4.

"He's afraid. Not all the time but every once in a while, and he's expressed that", Gomez said about her son.

The case has prompted the departure or discipline of key figures at Hacienda HealthCare, including the CEO William Timmons.

Nguyen has been suspended without pay until a full internal investigation is carried out by the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS).

Police are investigating whether there are any more victims at an Arizona care home where a quadriplegic patient gave birth after being raped.

Sutherland worked for Hacienda HealthCare since 2012. But her parents released a statement Tuesday disputing that characterization.

Earlier this week, the facility announced that two doctors were no longer practicing and the family clarified the victim's condition, saying she's not in a coma, but suffers intellectual disabilities.

The woman, 29, is unable to speak, has limited mobility in her limbs and face and is unable to breathe or feed herself without assistance.

The family's attorney, John Micheaels, said in a statement that they knew about the arrest but did not want to comment. The woman's family has said they will care for him.
