(INDIANAPOLIS) - A former Wishard employee was sentenced Friday for crimes committed against a patient in his care.
Folajuwoni Ajayi, 48, was convicted of voyeurism, battery and attempted criminal deviate conduct after he used his cellphone to record himself touching an unclothed, unconscious patient when he worked at the hospital as a certified nursing assistant.
Ajayi was sentenced to a year and a half in prison, two and a half years on home detention and two years of probation. Ajayi will also have to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
The victim testified in court that Ajayi imprisoned her, humiliated her and violated her in his 57-second video.
The patient victim in this case has retained a civil attorney, and there could be civil litigation filed against Wishard Hospital.
