Chicago nurse charged with sexually abusing paralyzed Afghan war veteran

A male nurse in Chicago has been arrested and charged with sexual abuse for allegedly fondling a paralyzed Afghan war veteran who cannot speak.

The two incidents, which happened in the soldier’s room at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago between July 4 and Aug. 6, involved 39-year-old nurse Dioscoro Flores, Cook County prosecutors say.

A police report said the soldier, who is a quadriplegic, let his father know of the abuse by communicating to him using eye motions and a board to spell out questions, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The father then notified the police and the hospital -- who said Flores would no longer be working with his son.

Both the hospital and police conducted investigations and Flores was arrested last week and charged Thursday with felony aggravated criminal sexual abuse, the Chicago Tribune reports. He has been ordered held on $50,000 bail.
