OTTAWA - A former Civic hospital security guard who finagled sexual gratification from two developmentally-delayed patients deserves eight years in the slammer, a Crown prosecutor argued Wednesday.

Clinton Russell, 44, preyed on vulnerable victims, prosecutor Suzanne Schriek told the court at the man's sentencing hearing.

"Eight years is the appropriate sentence," Schriek argued -- four years per victim.
