SAN DIEGO — Two former registered nurses have been sentenced to county jail time and probation for engaging in sex acts together when they were supposed to be caring for a 98-year-old woman in her home.

The U-T San Diego reports (http://bit.ly/1cQFE7o ) that Russel Torralba and Alfredo Ruiz each pleaded guilty to inflicting mental suffering on an elder. Torralba was sentenced to one year and Ruiz was sentenced to 325 days in jail.

Prosecutors say the men can be seen in surveillance video engaging in sexual conduct in front of the bedridden patient, who was unable to speak but could be seen waving her arms or using other forms of nonverbal communication to protest.

Attorneys for Torralba and Ruiz said their clients were remorseful for what they had done.
