|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 »
