ID=70017526WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The trial for a male nurse accused of sexually abusing three different women at local hospitals has been continued until January 5.

Jared Nathan Kline of Falls Church, Va., was arrested in November and was charged with three counts of second-degree sexual abuse of patients. The three women were patients at United Medical Center, George Washington University Hospital, and at Medstar Washington Hospital Center.

Prosecutors have offered Kline a plea for one count of attempted second degree sexual abuse of a patient for one victim and one count of misdemeanor sexual abuse of a different victim. As a part of the plea, Kline will have to agree that this guilty plea creates sufficient facts to justify revocation of his nursing license before the nursing board without the need for a hearing or trial there.

The alleged abuse incidents happened on May 12, 2013, December 29, 2013 and August 23, 2014, according to police.

According to court documents, the victims say Kline groped them, kissed them, and forced them to touch his genitals. One also added she later received unwanted texts from Kline.

There is also a warrant for Kline's arrest on sexual assault related charges in Maryland. The warrant relates to an incident that occurred at a medical center in Prince George's County, charging documents said.

Kline appeared in DC Superior Court for a preliminary hearing at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
