Ex-Stanford Hospital Worker Convicted Of Sexual Battery On Patients
A former Stanford Hospital employee pleaded no contest Monday to inappropriately touching male patients while they were under anesthesia, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office. Robert Lastinger, 55, of Fremont, was arrested in April 2015 by Redwood City detectives on suspicion of sexually battering patients under his care while he was an operating room technician at Stanford Hospital Outpatient Surgery Center in Redwood City. Lastinger pleaded no contest Monday to two counts of felony sexual battery on condition of no state prison term and up to one year in county jail, prosecutors said. (Gomez, 5/17)
