INVERNESS, Fla. (AP) -
A former Citrus County hospital nurse
convicted 14 years ago of raping sedated patients has been
sentenced to 210 years in prison.
A circuit judge on Wednesday gave 60-year-old Bruce Alan Young
seven consecutive 30-year prison terms, because he violated his
probation when he escaped from a mental facility last year.
Young pleaded guilty in February 1995 to raping seven women
after giving them extra doses of drugs. He was sentenced to 17
years in prison. He was released in 2005 but Florida law required
him to be confined indefinitely at a mental facility as a sexual
Young was arrested in 1994 after a fellow nurse spotted him
having sex with a sedated 15-year-old girl. After his arrest,
dozens of women came forward with similar claims.
