Male Nurse Steven Young Found Guilty of Sexual Assault on Quadriplegic Man

Steven Young, a male nurse in Mount Holly, New Jersey, was recently found guilty of sexually assaulting an unidentified quadriplegic man and videotaping the assault.

According to NBC Philadelphia, a jury took just 90 minutes on Wednesday to find Young guilty on two counts each of aggravated sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual contact and invasion of privacy.

During the trial, jurors watched a video of Young performing oral sex on the Medford, New Jersey, man, who was in his care.

Young had admitted to performing oral sex on the helpless man, but claimed it was consensual.

Prosecutors said the 34-year-old "catastrophically injured" victim was nonverbal, incapacitated and unable to consent.

Young could face up to 40 years in prison at his May 17 sentencing.
