PHOENIX (AP) — A licensed practical nurse has been arrested on a charge of sexually assaulting an incapacitated woman who gave birth last month at a long-term health care facility, Phoenix police said Wednesday.

Investigators arrested 36-year-old Nathan Sutherland, a licensed practical nurse, on suspicion of one count of sexual assault and one count of vulnerable adult abuse, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said.

The article goes on to state the following:

Sutherland was one of the woman’s caregivers at the Hacienda HealthCare facility and he was charged after authorities obtained a court order to take a DNA sample from him, which was compared to DNA of the baby boy, said police spokesman Tommy Thompson.

The 29-year-old victim has been incapacitated since the age of 3 and gave birth at the facility on Dec. 29.

    Why is RAPE being called a “Sexual Assault”? THERE ISS SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO TERMS, and to my mind, describing a RAPE as a “Sexual Assault” serves only to diminish the severity of the crime. IT IS IMPORTANT TO CALL A RAPE EXACTLY WHAT IT IS – OUR USE OF THE LANGUAGE SHALL DETERMINE SEVERITY.

    Sexual assault? Let’s call it what it is- rape!!! It is worse than using a date rape drug. As the victim has been comatose since the age of 3, this crime is equivalent to raping a minor, as it cannot be determined the mental capacity of this vulnerable person.
