Formerly convicted Cobb nurse turns self in after accidental release

UPDATE: Serdula turned himself in to the Cobb County jail at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

ORIGINAL: A male nurse convicted of sexually assaulting and taking video of sedated female patients, including children, was released from prison earlier this year under murky circumstances. 

Paul Serdula was sentenced in 2011 to life plus 25 years by Cobb Superior Court Judge Reuben Green

He was serving his sentence at Wheeler Correctional Facility, a private medium-security prison in Alamo, Georgia, when he won an appeal in February that vacated his convictions.

Although the convictions were vacated, Serdula still faced charges. Rather than being turned over to the Cobb Sheriff’s Office, however, he was released.
