ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A housekeeper arrested in September for allegedly raping an 81-year-old dementia patient at a Rochester nursing home has been indicted on charges including rape and criminal sexual act, New York Attorney General Letitia James said Thursday.
Khadka Pradhan, 51, is accused of assaulting the woman in her room at the Shore Winds Nursing Home around 6:30 a.m. on Sept. 29.
Pradhan was arrested the same day and pleaded not guilty to charges in a criminal complaint.
