A Phlebotomist at NHI is Imprisoned for Sexual Assault of Patient

Albert Genitty

Albert Genitty, a phlebotomist employed at the NHI clinic in Port Loyola, will spend three years behind bars after he was convicted today of sexual assault of a customer at the lab. Genitty was accused of inappropriately touching the woman, twenty-seven, when she went to the lab to do a battery of tests in 2015. According to the evidence presented in court, the woman told Genitty that she did not have the money to pay for the tests so would have to do them another time. That’s when Genitty, whose job at the clinic was to draw blood, told the woman he could do the tests for her free of cost. He instructed her to get undressed so he could take a swab, but the woman claimed he did much more than that, touching her and even trying to kiss her genitals. After she left the clinic the woman reported the assault to police and Genitty was picked up and charged. In a statement from the dock Genitty denied the allegation, saying he never told the woman that he would do the tests for free. He told the court that he did the tests and then the woman left without incident. Magistrate Ladonna John did not believe his story and found him guilty of Sexual Assault. It is believed that Genitty, who worked at the NHI clinic for twenty years, will appeal the conviction.
