Judge rules for veterans sexually abused at Kansas hospital

By KNSS Radio

A federal judge has awarded damages to two veterans who say they were sexually abused by a physician assistant at a VA hospital in Kansas.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Crabtree ruled Monday that hospital personnel should have “fairly foreseen” the wrongful conduct by physician assistant Mark Wisner.

Multiple patients complained about Wisner's conduct at the Dwight D. Eisenhower VA Medical Center in Leavenworth, Kansas. Crabtree awarded more than $538,000 to one veteran and over $1.5 million to the other.

Wisner is serving a 16-year prison sentence after convictions for aggravated sexual battery and aggravated criminal sodomy in 2017.
