Sudbury Doctor Convicted of Sexual Assault
Well-known physician Alfred N. Nkut was found guilty last week in Ontario Canada of Sexual Assault on a patient.
Nkut, who specialized in family practice, showed no emotion at the guilty verdict from Superior Court Justice Patricia Hennessy. He was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman with whom he had regular contact, between June 2008 and May 2009 at his Val Caron clinic.
The doctor was originally charged with five counts of sexual assault following the investigation.
As is the Canadian standard, the identification of the woman is withheld.
The woman, who testified the sexual advances and inappropriate touching started on June 5, 2008 reported Nkut’s continuous efforts to hug and kiss her; repeatedly asking for sex; and touching and grabbing her breasts.
The woman told the court she decided to stop all contact with Nkut in May 2009 and notified Greater Sudbury Police about the physician’s misbehavior.
Nkut, who is married with children, admitted he did ask the woman for sex multiple times over the course of a year, but stated he never touched her inappropriately.
Nkut also faces a $5,000 charge of Medical Billing Fraud – allegedly filing false claims with the Ontario Province Health system.
Nkut, age 48, who is out on bail, is scheduled to be sentenced in August.
