Chicago doctor charged with sexual assault

Charges have been brought against a Chicago doctor specializing in gynecology alleging sexual assault. Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney states that for almost eight years, police did not use DNA evidence in a case against a Chicago-area gynecologist who continued to practice gynecology despite multiple rape allegations made by patients. The Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney announced at a bond hearing that a rape examination of one of the alleged victims in 2002 turned up semen, but Chicago police did not request a DNA sample from the accused doctor.

The Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney announced that investigators recently finally secured a DNA sample from the accused doctor and the Illinois state crime lab determined that the accused doctor’s DNA profile matched the semen sample. The accused doctor was charged last week with sexual assault and turned himself into Chicago police. His defense attorney stated that the accused doctor plans to plead not guilty. The accused doctor has worked at several Chicago-area hospitals before moving his practice to Streator.
