ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) — A former Rapides Regional Medical Center nurse who was found guilty last month in the sexual battery of a sleeping patient will be sentenced Friday in state court in Alexandria.

The Town Talk reports (http://townta.lk/KwxnQv ) Phillip Wayne Raines of Deville faces up to 10 years in prison without parole.

Judge Thomas Yeager said at Raines' trial that he would consider Raines' military record in deciding a sentence.

A jury of six deliberated for less than an hour on April 19 before finding Raines guilty.
