Doctor to appear for alleged child molestation

2013-07-01 09:30

A doctor accused of sexually assaulting four boys would appear in the Humansdorp Magistrates’ Court today.

The case was postponed in February after the accused brought a new advocate to court, and he had to familiarise himself with the case.

The matter was expected to be heard from July 1 to July 5.

Two women claimed the 54-year-old man sexually molested their children in his Jeffreys Bay consulting rooms in 2003.

Three of the alleged victims are siblings.

The mothers opened cases against the doctor in August last year and he was arrested in September.

He is currently out on bail of R2 000.
