CODY, Wyo. (AP) - A male Cody nurse has been charged with sexually assaulting an unconscious female patient earlier this year.

The man was arrested Monday on a charge of first-degree sexual assault and made his first court appearance Tuesday in Park County Circuit Court in Cody.

Circuit Court Judge Bruce Waters set the man’s bail at $75,000 cash pending further proceedings.

Charging documents say a fellow nurse reported seeing the man using his hand inappropriately on the female patient during a January foot procedure.

The Powell Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1M9QnUB ) that the public version of the charging documents do not identify the man or the facility involved, but they say the nurse has been fired.

A preliminary hearing is tentatively scheduled for next week.
