Nurse gets probation after battering stroke patient

By The Associated Press

MUNCIE — A central Indiana nurse convicted of battering a hospital stroke patient has been sentenced to six months of probation.

A Delaware County judge gave 28-year-old Nathaniel Abraham Mosco a 180-day suspended sentence Monday and ordered him to serve 180 days of probation and perform 180 hours of community service.

Mosco was accused of sexually assaulting a now 72-year-old woman who was being treated last year for a stroke at Muncie’s IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital.

A jury acquitted the Hartford City man last month of sexual battery, but convicted him on a misdemeanor battery count.

The Star Press reports that the victim had told authorities that Mosco, whose nursing license has been suspended, had fondled her genitalia.

She testified Monday that the alleged incident has left her with nightmares.
