Colorado nurse accused of fondling patients pleads guilty

Posted: Updated:

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - A former Colorado nurse accused of fondling patients while administering morphine and other pain killers has pleaded guilty.
  
Prosecutors with the Weld County District Attorney's Office say 45-year-old Thomas Moore pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of attempted sexual assault. A plea deal calls for 12 years in prison when he's sentenced Dec. 15.
  
Prosecutors say Moore touched the breasts of five female patients at a UCHealth emergency room between March 2014 and April 2015. He was arrested in Fort Collins in December 2015 for allegedly groping three patients there as well.
  
Moore is accused of inappropriately touching at least 10 patients across Colorado and Nebraska.
  
He was fired from three hospitals before his arrest, highlighting how easy it can be for nurses accused of misconduct to find work elsewhere.
