A former Nova Scotia paramedic who sexually assaulted three women who were patients in his care will have to serve more time in prison for his offences.

James Duncan Keats was initially sentenced to four years in prison for raping a 71-year-old woman in her Annapolis Valley home. He was convicted in October 2015.

The judge, Justice Felix Cacchione, sentenced Keats to 30 months in prison for the assaults, but ordered that the sentence run at the same time as his original, four-year sentence rather than separately. Cacchione ruled that since the two sexual assaults occurred before the rape, he had to treat Keats as a first-time offender.

The Crown appealed and today, the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal ruled the trial judge was wrong. Keats's 30-month sentence is now being tacked on to the original four years.
