LOGAN -- A 46-year-old former emergency room technician is headed for a jury trial after police say he was caught performing a sex act on an unconscious patient.

The Herald Journal reports (http://bit.ly/JsPvcL) Hal Lavaun Weston of Laketown will go to trial Aug. 30 and 31. He has pleaded not guilty to forcible sodomy in connection to the alleged Jan. 21 incident.

Police say officers responded to a trespassing call earlier the night and arrested a man, who later passed out in custody.

An officer accompanied him to the hospital and waited outside a room while a technician was supposedly examining the suspect.

Police say the officer pulled aside a curtain to check whether the patient revived, and reportedly saw the technician performing oral sex on the still-unconscious man.
