David H. Newman, MD, a former emergency room physician at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, was sentenced to two years in prison on Monday for sexually abusing four female patients, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Dr. Newman, 46, was arrested Jan. 19, 2016, after two female patients accused him of sexual abuse. Two more women subsequently brought similar allegations against Dr. Newman. He was arraigned in March on charges of sexually abusing four female patients in the emergency room, including touching their breasts and, in one case, sedating, groping, masturbating and ejaculating on a patient.
Prosecutors alleged Dr. Newman sexually abused the four female patients, who ranged from ages 18 to 29, between August 2015 and January 2016.
