Male nurse sentenced to prison for attempted rape of patient


A 48-year-old male nurse was sentenced by a court in Kavala in northern Greece on Tuesday to 15 years in jail for the attempted rape of a 22-year-old patient at a hospital in the town of Drama after having sedated her.

The father of two reportedly injected his victim with a sedative before climbing into her bed and attempting to rape her. He had previously asked all people visiting other patients to leave the hospital ward saying he need to administer a painkiller to his victim.

He was detained by security guards after another patient, in the bed next to the 22-year-old, cried for help.
