Registered Nurse Practitioner’s License Suspended

A registered nurse practitioner in jail and facing 35 counts of sexual assault involving four female patients has now had his registered nurse's  license suspended.

Jeffer Sabino, 64, was arrested in Kings County in August at the Avenal Community Health Clinic after an investigation by the California Department of Consumer Affairs' (DCA) Division of Investigation Central Valley Field Office and the Avenal Police Department.

Sabino is accused of sexually assaulting young women between December 2010 and October 2012.  

At the request of the Board of Registered Nursing, on September 10, 2013, a Kings County Superior Court Judge issued an order, prohibiting Sabrino from practicing as a registered nurse and nurse practitioner for the duration of his criminal proceeding. 

"To prey on young women, and in a health care setting as a health care professional,  is unconscionable ," said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).  CSLEA represents DCA investigators along with nearly 7,000 other law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection professionals who work for the State of California.  "DCA investigators are among the best in the state as they uncover crimes against unsuspecting consumers or in this case, young patients seeking healthcare."

If convicted, Sabino faces 30 years to life in prison.
