LOS ANGELES (PIX11) – A 62-year-old nurse who had sex with the corpse of a woman he cared for in a Southern California hospital learned his fate this week.

Alejandro Razo, of Reseda, Calif., was sentenced to two years in state prison, to be served in county jail, with about 6 months of that sentence to be served under supervised release, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Thursday.

DNA evidence helped to convict Razo of having sexual contact with the body of an 82-year-old woman at Sherman Oaks Hospital, officials said.

Prosecutors said Razo was tasked with preparing the woman’s body when she died of natural causes in January 2013.

“Soon after, while the defendant was alone with the deceased victim, another nurse walked into the room and discovered Razo with his pants down, having sexual contact with the woman’s corpse,” prosecutors said.

A nurse for 20 years at various health care facilities, Razo has been ordered to stay from the hospital where he worked at the time of the offense.

He must also attend sexual offender meetings and weekly psychological counseling during his supervised release.

    Clearly this guy has some type of deep rooted issues going on besides the fact that he’s a scuzz bucket!! Who does that really?!? People should be thoroughly screened for these jobs at the hospital and such , it’s a wonder why the elderly are afraid of nursing homes , hospitals , therapeutic centers and so on . Honestly who can blame them?? People in general are a mess some more than others and then you have those who act like deviants!! What is the world coming to today?? it’s getting so that you have to be constantly aware of shady characters every where you go…

    A job around children.
    If your a person that wants to take advantage of people,what kind of job would you be looking for?
    When you are having any kind of surgery where you are put under, do you know how you are being treated?
    When a loved one of yours has passed and they under the “care” of others do you know how they are being treated?
    No, you don’t. You can trust no one.
