Physician sentenced on sexual assault charges

Posted under Stevens Point sexual assault attorneys

A 49 year-old Marshfield doctor will serve a five year prison sentence, as well as ten years extended supervision, after he plead guilty to sexually assaulting his female patients. The man worked as a gastroenterologist and inappropriately touched women who were under anesthesia.

Prosecutors urged the judge to give him twenty-five years behind bars. However, the judge believes that the man showed true remorse and had taken efforts to get help. He said the doctor is not a danger to the community, but needed to be punished.

The man surrendered his medical license when clinic officials approached him after a female patient complained.
