Gynecologist Charged With Sexual Assault
Dr. Kevin Pezeshki, 43, a gynecologist is due in court after being arrested in August 2012 on two counts of assaulting a female patient.
Other victims are a possibility; authorities are investigating.
Attorneys for the California attorney general representing the Medical Board of California will ask a judge Tuesday to require Pezeshki to stop practicing medicine pending the criminal case.
During a September 9, 2009 examination at the Northridge Medical Center, Pezeshki inappropriately touched a female patient.
Pezeshki performed a surgery on the woman and when he visited her at the hospital stating that he needed to conduct an examination and then he started hitting her on her back, groped her, and ejaculated on her bed sheets.
The woman was savvy enough to take the bed sheet and turn it in to police. A DNA test by the LAPD crime lab revealed that the DNA on the bed sheets matched the Pezeshki’s DNA.
Pezeshki is free on $200,000 bail but will still need to appear in court and face the sex crime of sexual assault.
