NEW YORK CITY – 39-year old registered nurse, Dioscoro Flores was arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a male quadriplegic Afghanistan War veteran on two separate occasions.

Prosecutors said Flores abused the 24-year old veteran between July and August in the alleged victim’s bedroom at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.

The victim, whose name was not released, is unable to speak. But he reportedly alerted his father by using eye movements and a ‘spell board’ after the second incident.

After an internal investigation, Flores was arrested last week and charged with felony aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

His bail was set at $50,000.
