Rasmussen told police the patient kissed him, undressed herself and it was a consensual encounter, according to the report.

Investigators later tried to talk to the victim, but family said she was admitted to a mental health facility and possibly pregnant from the incident, the report noted. Police charged Rasmussen because the victim was a mental health patient.

Rasmussen was charged with sexual misconduct with a mental health patient and booked into jail.
