SOUTHLAKE (1080 KRLD) - A former nurse convicted of sexually assaulting a patient is scheduled to be sentenced today.

According to police, Hoa "Kevin" Huyen was arrested in March of last year and charged with drugging and sexually assaulting a woman who had just gone through surgery at Methodist Southlake Hospital.

Reports say the patient had been sedated, but woke up during the attack.

Huyen surrendered his nursing license last year after he was arrested.

The jury will begin the punishment phase of the trial today. He could receive a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison on two counts of sexual assault.
