Arlington, Va. (AP) - A 69-year-old volunteer at an Arlington assisted living center has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing patients.

Richard O'Brian of Annandale was arrested in January after a worker at the Cherrydale Health and Rehabilitation Center told police she had seen him having sexual contact with a resident.

The center said O'Brian claimed to be a priest with the Catholic Apostolic Church, but church officials say O'Brian hasn't been associated with the church for 10 years.
