Joined by other police officials and city leaders, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams announces the arrest of Nathan Sutherland, a licensed practical nurse, on one count of sexual assault and one count of vulnerable adult abuse on an incapacitated woman who gave birth last month at a long-term health care facility on January 23, 2019. He was ordered held on $500,000 bail during a brief appearance in Maricopa County Superior Court. 'I know at this point there's DNA. He has not yet entered a plea. There is no excuse for what happened to a resident of Hacienda's Intermediate Care Facility for the Intellectually Disabled, nor have we sought to make excuses.

Sutherland was arrested Wednesday on one count each of sexual assault and vulnerable adult abuse. They believe Sutherland raped the patient sometime between February and April.

Police were first alerted when a staff member called 911 saying "one of our patients had a baby and we had no idea she was pregnant".

"I cried. I just cried and cried", she said.

Riggers said that Sutherland was a friend, describing him as fun and outgoing.

Arizona police have charged 36-year-old Nathan Sutherland, a former licensed practical nurse at Hacienda HealthCare, for the sexual assault of an incapacitated woman in the facility's care.

Esella Burr said Wednesday that 36-year-old Nathan Sutherland was her neighbour for more than five years until he sold his Phoenix-area home in October. "He told me he was a nurse and he liked his job".

"Before he started work with Hacienda, he underwent extensive background checks, including an extended criminal history search; a search of multiple government registries, including sex offender registries and Arizona Department of Economic Security and Child Protective Services registries; and checks of his personal references", it said.

"He's afraid. Not all the time but every once in a while, and he's expressed that", Gomez said about her son. The case has prompted the departure or discipline of key figures at Hacienda HealthCare, including the CEO.

In response to the governor's tweets, Hacienda HealthCare stated they have agreed to the State of Arizona's "request to have a third-party management team in place to oversee patient care and daily operations".

The victim, a member of the San Carlos Apache tribe, is not in a vegetative state, despite numerous reports to the contrary. He was hired by Hacienda Healthcare in Phoenix in 2014.

She has "significant intellectual disabilities" as a result of severe seizures in her early childhood, her family said in a statement.

"She does not speak but has some ability to move her limbs, head and neck", he said in a statement this week. Sutherland is the father of that baby, authorities say.

"We can say that our patients' and clients' health and safety is our number one priority and that we always cooperate, when asked by any agency, in an open and transparent way".
