Guilty conviction for former Children's Hospital tech

A former Alberta Children's Hospital worker has been found guilty of molesting two young girls, but not guilty of molesting two others.
Ronald Sayers actually confessed to inappropriately touching one of the girls, but recanted at the trial.
Court heard the judge didn't believe the 55-year old orthotics technician when he said he confessed to molesting the girl only to help her deal with her suicidal thoughts.
Sayers told police he touched the girl in her private area and felt guilty about it.
But on the stand, he said that wasn't true and he said allegations that he'd touched a teenaged patient while fitting her with a back brace were a lie.
In the end, the judge found Sayers guilty of sexual assault and sexual interference on two of the four girls, but not on a patient.
The attacks on the two girls took place in Sayers' home.
The Crown is asking for two years behind bars.
Sayers remains out on bail until a sentencing date is set.
