A former Beaumont Hospital nurse accused of infecting patients with hepatitis has pleaded guilty to criminal charges.
Jon Dale Jones is accused of infecting patients while stealing their pain medications during surgery. He pleaded guilty to assault and theft.
Prosecutors say Jones passed on Hepatitis C to at least 16 military patients back in 2004.
He faces up to 20 years in prison when he's sentenced in August.
