"If tomorrow he is outside, he will start again," warned the lawyer of the victim

On Monday, the Hauts-de-Seine Court sentenced a 50-year-old Algerian male who used to work as a nurse in the American Hospital of Neuilly-sur-Seine, to 14 years in prison for raping a patient under psychotropic treatment in February 2018. The woman was reportedly stunned with drugs at the time of the attack.

The convicted man, Mohamed A., who started working at the Neuilly hospital in 2006, had already been sentenced in 2012 for "sexual assault on a vulnerable person".

The sentence, which is slightly less severe than the public prosecutor had demanded, also bans the perpetrator from participating in any medical and paramedical profession for five years and contains an injunction for treatment.

Sylvie Noachovitch, the lawyer for the victim, described the accused man as a "predator", adding that "if tomorrow he is outside, he will start again."
