A former nurse at a Johnson County hospital pleaded no contest Monday to sexually assaulting a patient.
Dennis E. Clark, 50, pleaded no contest to a charge of aggravated criminal sodomy and a Johnson County District judge found him guilty.
As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors dismissed less serious sexual assault charges involving two other patients.
Misdemeanor charges that he exposed himself to neighbors in his Gardner neighborhood also were dismissed.

The agreement requires Clark to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
His sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 5.
The Johnson County case involved three patients at Menorah Medical Center when Clark worked at the Overland Park hospital in 2010 and 2011.
Assistant District Attorney Jason Covington said Monday that the charge Clark pleaded no contest to involved a patient who was unable to consent to sexual contact because of her physical condition and medication.
After leaving his job at Menorah, Clark went to work at Providence Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan.
Kansas City, Kan., police began investigating Clark in May 2014 after a Providence patient reported being sexually assaulted. Two other women reported similar incidents.
Wyandotte County prosecutors charged Clark with three counts of aggravated sexual battery.
After a fourth victim came forward, prosecutors amended the charges to include two counts of rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery.
The Kansas board of nursing revoked Clark’s registered nursing license after the charges were filed in Wyandotte County.
