Man jailed for groping nurse
A MAN who carried out a terrifying sex assault on a nurse has been jailed to “protect NHS staff”.
John Foulkes, 63, told his victim he “liked her big muscles” and said “he was not getting his 3am exercise because his wife was in hospital”.
A judge went beyond court guidelines and sentenced him to 10 weeks in prison for the “severity” of the crime.
He said: “Nurses have to feel they are protected by courts.”
Foulkes, of Bolton, Lancs, abused the nurse after she pulled the curtain around his bed to take some swabs on December 12 last year.
He touched her breasts and bottom and pushed himself against her.
Bolton JPs also ordered Foulkes to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for seven years.
