BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A former Billings Clinic nurse has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a girl.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://goo.gl/hvqfdt ) 46-year-old Todd Kinzel, who entered his plea Monday, was charged after two girls said he had touched them in an inappropriate way during what he told them was a “comprehensive exam.”

A plea agreement amended his charges to sexual assault against just one of the girls.

Kinzel was arrested last year when one of the girls told someone at her high school that he’d abused her in 2009. She told officers that when she was 13, Kinzel touched her after asking her to remove her pants and underwear.

Billings Clinic spokeswoman Julie Burton says Kinzel was never involved in direct patient care, and investigators assured hospital staff the charges were not work-related.
