The Bristol Herald Courier is reporting that a circuit court judge has denied bond  for a former nursing home aide charged with sexually assaulting the elderly patients.

James Wright, 34, faces four counts of aggravated sexual battery against four different patients. He has been in jail since his arrest in August. His trial is scheduled in January.
