Chicago, IL - A male nurse has been accused of fondling a paralyzed soldier in his room at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
The 24-year-old soldier has been at the institute since June after an undisclosed injury. He is paralyzed and unable to speak, but let his father know 39-year-old Dioscoro Flores had fondled his junk on two occasions.
According to a police report, he was able to use eye movements and a spell board to accuse Flores of molesting him twice in his room between July 4 and August 6.
The unidentified man told his father he wanted to press charges against the registered nurse, so his father alerted hospital staff and contacted police. After an investigation, Flores was arrested this week and charged with felony aggravated criminal sexual abuse. On Thursday, Flores was ordered held on $50,000 bail.
“It was shock at first and then anger afterward,” said the father. “The first initial shock was just, did you just tell me what you told me? Because my communication with him isn’t really easy.”
His son was a sharpshooter and did a year-long tour of duty in Afghanistan starting in June 2011. The father said his son suffered an injury in May that left him a quadriplegic. He said that he hopes his son will be able to speak down the road. “Mentally, he’s 100 percent there,” he said.
Ain’t life grand? One day you’re sniping Taliban from 100 yards, and the next you’re paralyzed in the hospital while a Hispanic Peter Lorre plays with your dick.
