Uwadiegwu was indicted in August by a Warren County grand jury on multiple counts of rape and gross sexual imposition. The indictment accused Uwadiegwu of having sexual contact with victims while working at a facility in Deerfield Twp. and Maineville. The crimes allegedly occurred in January 2021 and September 2020.
Uwadiegwu pleaded guilty in November in Warren County Common Pleas Court to two counts of gross sexual imposition. The other charges were dismissed.
Warren County Common Pleas Judge Donald Oda II sentenced Uwadiegwu to the maximum sentence of three years in prison — 18 months on each count.
Butler County Prosecutor Michael Gmoser said there are two victims in the Butler County case, one from Middletown and the other from Hamilton. Also, Uwadiegwu was not employed in health care facilities or nursing homes at the time of the crimes.
Uwadiegwu was providing nursing care in a person’s home where he sexually assaulted her, Gmoser said. The victim is paraplegic, he said.
The second case stemmed from a “date” situation in which Uwadiegwu sexually assaulted the woman, Gmoser said.
