A convicted sex offender is now charged with sexually assaulting at least two patients at a San Pablo convalescent care home.

Prosecutors say Julio Mestre faces several felonies in connection with the molestation of two women at Creekside health care center. The victims share a room. The incident took place on May 8th.

Authorities say Mestre visited the home regularly with his wife to deliver Holy Communion to seniors.

He was convicted of molesting a woman at Laguna Honda hospital back in 2005.

Mestre has pleaded not guilty to the new charges.
