BROOMFIELD, Colo. - A former nursing assistant accused of sexually assaulting three patients at a Broomfield nursing home where he worked is denying the charges.

The Broomfield Enterprise reports 41-year-old Antonio Nieto pleaded not guilty last week to two counts of sexual assault on an at-risk adult, four counts of sexual assault and one count of unlawful sexual contact of an at-risk adult. His trial is set to begin April 7.

Nieto is accused of sexually assaulting a 59-year-old, a 73-year-old and a 93-year-old while he worked at Broomfield Skilled Nursing.
