Child Abusers Among the Medical Community

In the US, doctors typically get automatic respect that most other members of society do not.   As a result, they often get a “free pass” for violating the law, particularly when it comes to sexual abuse of children.

However, a Cambodian court was not as impressed, and convicted a Syracuse ER Doctor of child sexual abuse.  He had traveled to Cambodia for charity.   That ER doctor spent 18 months in prison in Cambodia.   When the ER doctor came back to the US, the state ordered that he be classified as a sex offender based on his conviction overseas.  He fought that classification, but the Court of Appeals  in NY upheld the conviction.
