Filipino nurse's aide sentenced to 25 years in rape of patient
A DuPage County judge sentenced a former nurse's aide to 25 years in prison today for raping and impregnating a severely disabled woman at a nursing home in the Chicago suburb of Bloomingdale.
The sexual attack only came to light when the woman, who cannot walk, talk or feed herself, was dicovered to be pregnant in June of 2005. She later gave birth to a daughter.
Twenty-year-old Reynaldo Brucal (brew-CALL') of Schaumburg pleaded guilty last year to aggravated criminal sexual attack after DNA evidence showed him to be the baby's father.
In passing sentence, Circuit Court Judge George Bakalis called the crime "beyond outrageous."
Bakalis said that upon his release from prison, Brucal will be deported to his native Philippines.
