Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

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.
