WASHINGTON – A former Washington nurse has been found guilty of sexually assaulting three women who were emergency room patients.
Media outlets report 38-year-old Jared Kline was found guilty on Wednesday. Prosecutors say Kline encountered the three victims in separate incidents during 2013 and 2014 while he was working as a staff nurse at three different hospital emergency rooms.
Prosecutors argued Kline forced the women to touch him as he was taking their blood pressure and performing examinations.
Kline was found guilty of second-degree sexual abuse for three incidents, two of which with aggravating circumstances.
The jury acquitted him on an additional three counts and didn't reach a unanimous verdict in the four remaining counts.
Kline will return to court for a status hearing on June 28.
