Convicted child molester Donald Robert Baker of Templeton has died at a hospital in Bakersfield.
Baker, 40, was incarcerated at Wasco State Prison in Kern County. He died March 22 of complications from cancer, said Robert Mazuka, prison spokesman.
Baker, a former director of critical care at Twin Cities Community Hospital, had lung cancer, which was spreading through his body. He pleaded no contest to 11 charges including child molestation and possession of child pornography.
In February, he was sentenced to 16 years in state prison.
