SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A former nurse’s aide was found guilty of forcible touching.
After a bench trial, a judge determined that Andrew Curwen, 27, put his hand on a male patient’s genitals at Ellis Hospital without his permission. The incident took place in January.
The victim identified Curwen in court. Images from the hospital security cameras corroborated the victim’s testimony, though the actual crime wasn’t captured.
Curwen is scheduled to be sentenced on September 28. He faces up to a year in jail.
