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."
