Nurse Aide Sexually Battered Patient During Physical Exam

A man who was at the doctor for an exam has accused his attending nurse aide of attempting to perform oral sex upon him during the appointment.

On September 17, a patient at the primary care physician’s office of Dr. Eduardo Palanca in Clearwater, Florida, was in an examination room around 9:00 pm for his yearly physical.

41-year-old Roger Cala Martin, a certified nursing assistant with a license to practice since 9-years ago, entered the room to perform the checkup, for which the patient was reportedly disrobed.

The alleged victim reported that much to his surprise and against his will when he was having his genital area examined by Martin the man allegedly put his mouth around his penis.

The patient then reportedly exited the examination room as quickly as he was able, and he told the doctor about the alleged incident before he called the authorities.

The Clearwater police responded to the alert and went to the doctor’s office where the alleged offense had taken place.

According to the affidavit, an officer read him his Miranda rights and placed Martin under arrest for the allegations made by the reportedly put-off patient.

Following his detainment, Martin allegedly consented to speak with the authorities about what had taken place. He was reported as giving an admission to the accusations and allegedly said that he did place his mouth around the man’s penis during the examination. He additionally reportedly said that the patient did not give consent and was unaware that it was going to happen.

Martin, who is recorded as living in a house in Oldsmar with Dr. Pinella, is expected to face charges for suspicion of felony sexual battery. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail overnight until he posted a $10,000 bond.
