SANDUSKY

Accused rapist John R. Riems has been indicted on 10 charges by an Erie County grand jury.

Riems, 49, is charged with one count of gross sexual imposition and three counts each of rape, sexual battery and patient abuse.

The nurse was arrested last month after family members of a 55-year-old blind and partially paralyzed male resident at Concord Care and Rehabilitation Center told police he was sexually abused by Riems.

During questioning Riems recalled abusing nearly 100 patients during his 22-year career, police said.
