MassLive reported the case of certified nursing aide Parkpoom Seesangrit- guilty of rape for a May 2014 crime at the East Longmeadow Skilled Nursing Center.  Assistant District Attorney Lee Baker said Seesangrit digitally penetrated the 69-year-old victim’s vagina. She was on the dementia unit at the facility and Seesangrit was a certified nursing assistant.

 Seesangrit testified through a Thai interpreter he was changing a diaper for the victim and cleaning her, but did not digitally penetrate her. He acknowledged he told an East Longmeadow police sergeant he used two fingers to penetrate the woman.  Seesangrit said he never touched the woman sexually.

He said he was aware of the nursing facility’s policy that men could not render care to female patients but he chose to change the woman anyway.

Seesangrit admitted his guilt when questioned by an East Longmeadow police sergeant but then denied he did anything inappropriate.

He has been sentenced to up to eight years in prison.
