2011-07-25 11:11

Los Angeles – Trial is set to begin for a Los Angeles doctor who is the son of Bermuda’s leader and is charged with molesting a dozen of his female patients.

Opening statements begin today in Los Angeles Superior Court for Kevin Antario Brown, who has pleaded not guilty to 33 felony sex counts and could face life in prison if convicted on all of them.

The 40-year-old Brown is the son of Bermuda Premier Ewart Brown.

During a pre-trial hearing, 12 women including an undercover vice officer and a 15-year-old girl testified that Kevin Brown improperly touched them.

Some say he gave them vaginal or breast exams for complaints like ankle injuries or the flu. One woman alleges he raped her.

The trial is expected to last three to four weeks.
