Man faces sexual assault charge for grabbing nurse at U-M Hospital

By Kyle Feldscher

A 52-year-old Ann Arbor man faces a sexual assault charge for inappropriately grabbing a nurse at University of Michigan Hospital while he was being treated in May.

According to court records, Jon Wallace was arraigned on a charge of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct Monday. The 52-year-old man was arrested on May 5 at U-M Hospital.

University of Michigan police reported Wallace inappropriately grabbed a nurse while he was a patient at the hospital. The incident was reported at 3:24 p.m. May 5 and police responded to 1500 E. Medical Center Drive.

Wallace was arrested, processed and released pending charges on May 5 and was officially charged on Monday.

Fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct is a high-court misdemeanor. In this cause, the charge was brought because police accuse Wallace of having sexual contact on another person through force or coercion.

He was given a $10,000 personal recognizance bond. Wallace is scheduled to return to court at 8:30 a.m. July 25 for a preliminary exam, records show

The sergeant at the WCSO who usually provides these photos to us has been out of contact so far this week.

Violence toward healthcare workers is serious, should have a zero tolerance standard and perps should be prosecuted fully - very simple consequences toward anyone who harms a healthcare worker doing their job.

Always be respectful and courteous to nurses....they're usually the ones administering the pain medication!

Allegedly speaking, right?

Totally agree. Just helping adhere to their own policy.

Brad I hate to defend someone accused of such behavior. I doubt the nurses have time to make this stuff up. But I think you are right that the word "allegedly" belongs somewhere before the word "grabbed." The rest of the article seems careful to say that he is facing charges of....which means that he has not been found guilty.

It seems Mr. Wallace was sick, but spry.

It is not very funny when you are the other end of such unwanted actions.
