Allen Miller, the 28-year-old man charged with attempting to sexually abuse girls in his care while working at Providence Medical Center, pleaded guilty in Anchorage Superior Court Friday.

Miller’s plea bargain involves accepting the one charge of attempted sexual abuse of a minor.

Miller worked as a Patient Care Technician at Providence, tasked with providing care to kids in the hospital's pediatric unit.

Police said Miller with twice sexually abused 14-year-old girl under his care, first assault in July and again in October.

Court documents revealed a second victim, citing a report filed with Anchorage police in August from a 17 year-old girl recovering from a car crash at Providence. That victim was in in a chest brace, her head covered in bandages after a recent skin graft, when the police report wrote Miller sexually abused her in her sleep.

Police said, while being interviewed by detectives, Miller admitted to touching the girls.

Sentencing is expected on May 16. For his guilty plea, Miller could face between two and 12 years behind bars. Aggravators could extend that sentence to a maximum of 99 years, with a $100,000 fine.
