Jury finds nursing assistant guilty in sexual assault case

By Bryan Callahan. CREATED Feb 28, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The man accused of sexually assaulting patients has been found guilty.

Steven Farmer, the nursing assistant accused of assaulting at least six patients at Centennial Hills Hospital back in 2009, was on trial for the case.

He was facing 15 charges, and has was found guilty of 13. That included four counts of sexual assault, eight counts of gross lewdness and one count of indecent exposure.

"I think the focus should be on the guilty finding on the 13 counts because it was an overwhelming victory for the State of Nevada and this community that justice was done."

Farmer is being held without bail until his sentencing on May 28.
