Sleep Study Technician Faces Criminal Charges for Sexually Assaulting Patients During Sleep Studies

Sleep study technician Andrew Chickoree is facing criminal charges in Pasco County, Florida after two female patients separately accused him of touching them in a sexual manner at two sleep study locations.  Chickoree, age 52, was arrested and charged with one count of sexual battery and one count of battery.  Both women reported that they were touched in a sexual manner during overnight sleep studies.  The criminal charges involve alleged incidents in New Port Richey and Zephyrhills, where Chickoree worked as a sleep technician.  The incident in New Port Richey occurred at the Pasco Sleep Center in August 2019 while the incident in Zephyrhills occurred at the Florida Medical Clinic Sleep Lab.
