WA - Raymond Hughes for raping quadriplegic 12yo girl, Spokane, 2004
SPOKANE -- A registered nurse pleaded guilty to raping a severely disabled 12-year-old girl in his care.
Raymond C.Carl Hughes, 35, was supposed to be caring for the quadriplegic girl at her north Spokane home when he raped her last April, prosecutors allege.
Hughes pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree child rape and one count of second-degree rape. Defense lawyer George Caplan said he will ask that one of the counts be thrown out at sentencing Dec. 9.
Hughes faces a minimum sentence of 6 1/2 to 8 1/2 years in prison, with a possible maximum of life in prison as a serious sex offender.
The girl, who is dying of complications from cerebral palsy, can't speak or move, Spokane County Deputy Prosecutor Kelly Fitzgerald said. Hughes was filling in for the girl's regular home-care nurse, who had a family emergency.

From April 2006:
Hughes, 34, was a small, comforting man who quickly put Elizabeth and her 12-year-old daughter at ease when he came over to work the overnight shift... S. was severely brain-damaged and paralyzed at birth. She could not sit up, speak or swallow, and needed around-the-clock care to keep her breathing.
What the Hendershotts didn't know was that over the past decade the state had received four other complaints about Hughes — the last three closed without any investigation...
Hughes was convicted and sentenced to eight years for rape of a child. When reached at prison, Hughes described himself as a "monster in the closet."
