Con­victed doc­tor won’t seek physi­cian list­ing

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - THE HAMIL­TON SPEC­TA­TOR

A Hamil­ton pe­di­a­tri­cian twice con­victed of abus­ing teenage boys has promised he will never again seek reg­is­tra­tion to be a physi­cian.

The Col­lege of Physi­cians and Sur­geons re­viewed Daniel Mar­shall’s signed un­der­tak­ing at a hear­ing on June 29.

The hear­ing panel found him guilty of pro­fes­sional mis­con­duct by en­gag­ing in an act that “would rea­son­ably be re­garded by mem­bers as dis­grace­ful, dis­hon­ourable or un­pro­fes­sional”, ac­cord­ing to de­tails posted to the col­lege’s web­site.

They also or­dered Mar­shall to ap­pear be­fore them to be rep­ri­manded and pay the col­lege $5,500 to cover the cost of the one-day hear­ing.

The once-re­spected doc­tor was banned from the med­i­cal pro­fes­sion by the col­lege last Septem­ber.

Mar­shall’s le­gal trou­bles started in Septem­ber 2012 when he was charged with 32 sex crimes and one count of breach of bail. Of the sex crimes, 29 were based on al­le­ga­tions by 20 boys that Mar­shall touched them im­prop­erly while do­ing gen­i­tal ex­ams.

Af­ter a trial in Su­pe­rior Court he was con­victed of one count of sex­ual as­sault and ac­quit­ted of the other al­le­ga­tions. He was sen­tenced to eight months in jail and served six. Pub­lic­ity around that case brought a sec­ond vic­tim for­ward and Mar­shall was con­victed of two more counts.

He es­caped jail that time and was fined $5,000.
