A former Rochester nursing dwelling worker was sentenced Friday to many years behind bars for the rape and sexual assault of an 81-year-old resident affected by dementia, New York Legal professional Basic Letitia James mentioned.
Khadka Pradhan, 52, was sentenced to 25 years in jail to be served concurrently, and 20 years of post-release supervision for the occasions that passed off at a nursing dwelling in Rochester in September 2021, the place he labored on the time as a housekeeper.
In November 2022, a jury convicted Pradhan of rape within the first diploma, legal sexual act within the first diploma, and endangering the welfare of an incompetent or bodily disabled individual within the first diploma, and different lower-level offenses.
“When a New Yorker enters a nursing home, they and their families expect that they will be treated with care and respect,” James mentioned in a press release. “Khadka Pradhan committed hideous, shocking crimes, violating an elderly nursing home resident who trusted she would be safe.”
