Montana — 31-year-old Ross Michael Robertson was a patient at Montana State Hospital when he assaulted a nurse because she told him to change into his gray T-shirt, that he was supposed to wear to identify his status.
Video Surveillance at that the hospital revealed Robertson pushed the nurse, she fell backward and hit her head. She spent six days in the hospital and is now in a rehabilitation facility and is suffering from a traumatic brain injury.
He subsequently pled guilty but mentally ill on Thursday in court. District court Judge Kurt Krueger has not yet set a sentencing date.
According to Attorney Greg Jackson, Robertson's attorney said his client was being treated for schizophrenia and delusions at the Warm Springs facility in January 2012
