A grand jury indicted former Children's Hospital of Georgia employee Bernard Edwards on Tuesday for allegedly molesting patients back in January.
Bernard is charged with aggravated sexual battery, sexually assaulting a patient in the hospital, simple battery, and child molestation.
Georgia Regents University spokesperson Christen Carter released a statement to FOX54 stating:
"The arrest of Bernard Edwards, a former Mental Health Technician at Georgia Regents Medical Center, is a pending criminal matter and no further comment concerning the facts of his case will be issued at this time. His employment with the institution has been terminated and we will continue to partner with investigating agencies and the Georgia Attorney General's office to resolve this matter.
This is an unfortunate and regrettable occurrence and in no way reflects the behavior and character of Georgia Regents Medical Center employees. The safety and security of our patients is our top priority and we will continue to take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of our patients, visitors and staff."
