The Orange County Register reported on August 18, 2010, that last month, a 23 year old male victim reported to officers that he was fondled by an employee who was conducting a medical exam, at the Western Medical Center in Anaheim. Richard Nolan, 45, was arrested and booked in the Anaheim detention facility, on suspicion of felony sexual assault. Police conducting the investigation have found another apparent victim who was a patient in June 2009.
Sexual assault is a crime under Penal Code section 243.4 (a); whereby any person who touches an intimate part of another person while that person is unlawfully restrained by the accused or an accomplice, and if the touching is against the will of the person touched and is for the purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification, or sexual abuse, is guilty of sexual battery. A violation of this subdivision is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than one year, and by a fine not exceeding two thousand dollars ($2,000); or by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, and by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000).
