Texas dermatologist ordered to wear monitoring device while awaiting trial
Posted on Tuesday, June 21st, 2011
A 59-year-old dermatologist in San Antonio was recently ordered to wear an electronic monitoring device while he awaits trial for allegedly sexually assaulting several patients. The man’s license was already suspended by the Texas Medical Board.
The dermatologist was indicted last month on two counts of sexually assaulting his patients. In both instances, the doctor is accused of luring women into back rooms where he allegedly fondled them. Several women came forward against the man accusing him of sexual assault dating back to 1986, however, the statute of limitations had run out for those cases.
Fearing that the man would try to flee the country, a Bexar County judge ordered him to wear an electronic monitoring device and surrender his passport.
His trial will begin in the upcoming months.
