WAUSAU PILOT AND REVIEW
RHINELANDER, Wis. — Two days after police started investigating a certified nursing assistant on allegations he sexually assaulted a patient, a second patient came forward with accusations of assault.
WJFW reports that prosecutors charged Jacob Schlosser, 18, with a third count of second-degree sexual assault in Oneida County Court on Monday.
According to the amended criminal complaint obtained by WJFW, a 94-year-old resident at Avanti Health and Rehabilitation in Minocqua told a nursing supervisor on March 22 that Schlosser sexually assaulted a patient during a bath one week prior.
Police say Schlosser did not use a washcloth while bathing the victim’s genitals, then proceeded to fondle the victim.
Avanti records show March 15, the day of the alleged assault, was Schlosser’s first day bathing patients without supervision, the WJFW report states.
Schlosser, who just received his CNA license on March 4, was first charged with two counts of second-degree sexual assault on March 21.
In the initial case, police believe Schlosser sexually assaulted an 80-year-old victim who has dementia during a bath.
Schlosser had initially been free on a $5,000 signature bond, but Judge Patrick O’Melia set a $2,000 cash bond on Monday after the new charge was filed.
Schlosser now faces up to 120 years in prison if convicted. He is due back in court March 29.
