When I first read the headline “Visiting Nurse Groped, East Hartford Police Say” I was expecting some 90-year-old man to have slapped his nurse’s bottom, which surely seems par for the course. Afterall, didn’t most of those old men meet theirs wives while sexually harassing nurses in military hospitals uring WWII? But it turned out to be way grosser…
The Courant reports:
At about 11 a.m. Tuesday, police said, a nurse made a routine visit to Rivera’s apartment. He asked her for a kiss, police said, and when she declined, he grabbed her by the face and neck and tried to kiss her on the lips. He wouldn’t let her go, police said.
He tried to slide his hands down her pants and fondled her chest and crotch areas, police said.
Ew ew ew ew ew ew ew! I don’t care if the guy was mentally ill, my first reaction would have been to knee him in his man-parts. I wonder if the judge in this case could issue that as a sentence: one knee to the groin to be dispensed by the victim?
