Sexual assault charges against GP adjourned to Oct 8
A WANGARATTA doctor facing charges of sexual assault and capturing an intimate image made a brief appearance at Wangaratta Magistrate’s Court on Monday when his case was adjourned.
The matter was dealt with at the counter prior to the court sitting and the accused had his bail extended to reappear at Wangaratta on October 8.
The doctor was originally charged after allegedly conducting a female health test on a patient without wearing gloves on October 10, 2017.
On November 30 detectives later seized camera equipment and computer images from the doctor’s home and the clinic where he practised which allegedly revealed inappropriate images of up to another 19 female patients.
