Geneva, Illinois, doctor charged with felony sexual assault

Police have arrested a Geneva doctor for sexually assaulting a female acquaintance in 2012 at his home. In a statement released by the Kane County state attorney's office, the 55-year-old physician has been charged with one felony count of aggravated criminal sexual assault and an additional felony count of criminal sexual assault.

According to news sources, the doctor allegedly assaulted the woman in his former house in November of 2012. The report indicates police took the physician into custody at his Geneva practice earlier this month after officials authorized the charges. The warrant issued for the arrest carries a bond of $250,000, according to the office of the state attorney.

Reportedly, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) had already suspended the doctor's licenses, prohibiting him from practicing. This suspension includes the defendant's surgeon, physician, and controlled substance licenses. The IDFPR also filed documents stating the physician confessed to having sexual relationships with some of his ex-patients, including his current common law wife and his ex-wife.

The most serious charge filed against the doctor potentially carries a six to 30 year prison sentence and sources say if he manages to post bail, he is forbidden to have any contact with the alleged victim. He must also surrender his passport and abstain from any alcohol, according to the statement. Later this month, the doctor must put in an appearance before a disciplinary review board.

In order to receive the health care we need, we tend to put a lot of trust in members of the medical community. While it's disheartening to hear about a doctor who breaks that trust, it's good to see victims of sexual assault and sexual abuse pursue legal action against those who have harmed them.
