CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Judgment day for a former student nurse at Fairview Hospital convicted of assaulting a maternity patient.

James Lewis was sentenced to two years probation, 60 days in jail and he must register as a tier one sex offender for 15 years.

In June of 2012, Lewis was working at Fairview Hospital as a student nurse anesthetist in the birthing center.

Police were notified after a patient in labor reported that he had fondled her and put her hand on his penis.

On December 16, 2013, Lewis entered a plea of guilty to one felony count of patient abuse or neglect and one misdemeanor count of sexual imposition.

As part of the plea agreement, Lewis is not permitted to work in any healthcare field and has been ordered to surrender his nursing licenses.
