Doctor charged of sexually assaulting his patients

  • Toronto anesthesiologist George Doodnaught got sentenced to 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting 21 women during surgery. 

    Reports suggest that his victims were aware of their surroundings despite being sedated as the 65-year-old forced oral sex on them. 

    "Never once during this whole process, even when I was on the stand, when I was giving my victim impact statement, at any time, did he look at me," one of the women said. "He's a coward."

    Doodnaught worked as a doctor for 26 years at North York General and all victims except for one got treated there between 2006 and 2010.
