Nurse pleads guilty to attempted sexual assault of patients

GREELEY - A former University of Colorado Health nurse accused of attempted sexual assault on at least 10 patients has pleaded guilty Friday in court.

Thomas Moore, 45, who reportedly acted in Colorado and Nebraska, has pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted sexual assault in Weld County and faces 12 years in prison for those charges.

According to the Weld County District Attorney's Office, Moore fondled five female patients at a UCH emergency room in Greeley from March 2014 to April 2015.

The five women came forward after Moore was arrested in Fort Collins for allegedly sexually assaulting more patients there.

The Weld County DA says Moore committed the crimes while administering morphine and other painkillers. The victims said he also rubbed their shoulders, which made them uncomfortable.

Moore faces additional charges in Larimer and Adams counties.
