In a case marked by court delays, a male nurse has finally been sentenced to 34 years to life in state prison and mandatory lifetime sex offender registration for sexually assaulting three male patients.
Courtesy of Anaheim Police Dept. Richard Alan Nolan is finally off to prison.
Two of the men were medically incapacitated at the time they were victimized by Richard Alan Nolan, 49, of Buena Park, in 2009. Nolan falsely identified himself as a doctor in July 2010, when he masturbated a man receiving a physical. The licensed vocational nurse was arrested on Aug. 18 of that year by Anaheim Police detectives.
A jury found Nolan guilty of the crimes on June 21, 2013, but due to various moves by the defense final sentencing did not happen until Friday, prompting someone close to a victim to proclaim, "Justice is finally served!"More »
