B casper» The 47-year-old former Wyoming doctor accused of sexually assaulting female patients has been bound over for trial.
Paul Harnetty is charged with eight counts of second-degree sexual assault and two counts of thirddegree sexual assault.
He originally faced 12 counts, but during a preliminary hearing Thursday, Natrona County Circuit Court Judge Michael Patchen dismissed two counts because there wasn’t enough evidence.

Harnetty’s attorney, John Miner, countered Thursday that it’s possible the doctor was just performing thorough exams.
