SALT LAKE CITY -- More charges have been filed against a former school nurse accused of sexually abusing students.

Geary Oakes now faces six counts of forcible sexual abuse and six counts of distribution of a controlled substance.

Those charges are in addition to other counts of forcible sex abuse and forcible sodomy filed earlier this month.

He has worked as a nurse for 10 years at Cedar Ridge Academy -- a facility for troubled teens in Roosevelt.

Prosecutors say Oakes gave several students narcotics in exchange for sexual favors over the last few months.
