A nursing assistant was found guilty of fondling a client's breast as she slept in a rehab centre.
Quebec's order of nurses says Louis Cyr molested the patient on Jan. 22, 2009, in the provincial capital.
He was fired a month later and pleaded guilty under his professional code of conduct in March 2011.
The victim testified that she had checked into rehab to deal with alcoholism following a painful separation.
"When she went to sleep, she noticed light from a pocket flashlight and felt a hand stroking her breast," the order of nurses said in its indictment.
"She says she felt attacked."
