EMS worker pleads guilty to sexually assaulting 'immobilized' woman

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - A former EMS worker who is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in an ambulance has pleaded guilty.

Court officials say 45-year-old Anthony Louis Green of Goose Creek pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sexual conduct. Green was arrested in January for the incident that happened in June of last year.

According to the court affidavit, Green admitted to "engaging in sexual battery with the victim" and "knew the victim was physically helpless."

The affidavit states the female victim, who was being taken to the hospital following a domestic violence incident, was immobilized on a backboard "in full c-spine precaution" when she was sexually assaulted by Green.

Investigators say Green was alone in the back of the ambulance with the victim. Court documents also state that DNA evidence recovered from the victim identifies Green as the offender.

County officials say Green was hired by Charleston County in July of 1999 as a temporary EMS employee and became a full time employee in May of 2001.
