SPY NIGERIA reports that Godbless Uwadiegwu, a Nigerian nurse, was sentenced to three years in jail in the United States for sexually abusing patients.
After pleading guilty to sexually abusing patients, Uwadiegwu, a former nurse assistant, was sentenced to three years in jail by a US court on Tuesday, December 28.
Nigerian Nurse Jailed
Traditions of Deerfield and Otterbein SeniorLife in Maineville were both accused of having sexual contact with the 59-year-old.
Uwadiegwu, who pled guilty to two felony counts of gross sexual imposition in November, had previously been charged with three counts of rape and three counts of gross sexual imposition. The rape charges and one of the gross sexual imposition counts were dropped as part of the plea.
Prosecutors sought the maximum sentence. However, his attorney unsuccessfully argued in court that Uwadiegwu was not a repeat offender and only a “moderate risk.”
Asides being sentenced to jail, he will also be required to register as a Tier I sex offender for at least 15 years.
Meanwhile, Uwadiegwu faces similar charges from two alleged incidents in Butler County, in Hamilton in September 2018 and in Middletown in December 2013.
A Butler County grand jury indicted him in November on five charges including rape, two counts of gross sexual imposition, sexual battery and unlawful restraint.
Hamilton police records allege he was a state-tested nursing assistant when he had sexual contact in a private home in 2018 with a disabled victim who could not resist or give consent due to her condition.
The other report, from Middletown police, is from 2013. That victim stated that she was friends with Uwadiegwu and said that he was pushing to become her home health provider when he sexually assaulted her.
