Man on patient assault charge

A VERDICT is expected on Monday in the trial of a man accused of sexually assaulting a patient while working as a care assistant in the Mater Private Hospital.

Folajimmy Awode (31), of Ballinteer House, Tyrellstown, Dublin 15, has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault of a female patient at the Mater Private Hospital in 2013.

The woman, who cannot be identified, alleges she was awoken by a rubbing sensation on her breast, and upon opening her eyes saw Mr Awode lifting his hand from her body.
