A Newark man will appear in Alameda County Superior Court today to
possibly enter a plea to charges that he committed sex crimes on a patient at
a nursing facility in Fremont.
The Alameda County District Attorney's Office has charged Bruce
Michael Goulart, 57, with 17 felony counts of committing a lewd act on a
dependent adult while being a caregiver.
Goulart is accused of committing the crimes each week between
April 1 and Aug. 23, according to prosecutors.
Goulart, who is being held at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin in
lieu of $500,000 bail, is scheduled to appear in Department 605 at the
Fremont Hall of Justice at 9 a.m. today.
