Another Emigrant Doctor Headed for Trial? Yep. A Multiple Rape Case

Starting to sound like a broken record, are we?

Dr Jay Jungho Cho

In the greater-Harrisburg Pennsylvania area a doctor who operated clinics in Franklin and Cumberland Counties was bound over for trial this week on some pretty ugly charges.

Doctor Jay Cho, age 71, a resident of Hampden Township, was in Harrisburg Superior Court on Friday for a preliminary hearing, after which he was charged with multiple felonies of prescribing narcotics to more than 10 women patients for the purpose of manipulating their addictions in order to sexually assault them.

Cho was arrested in February for the following:

  • Patient Rape
  • Illegal Drug Delivery by a Medical Practitioner
  • Aggravated Indecent Assault

Investigators in Cumberland County believe Cho routinely dealt powerful narcotics – at least one of which was Oxycodone – to the women, in doses that far exceeded normal prescription range and for no legitimate reason.

Lady Liberty Embarrassed

The court record states the women told investigators they were afraid to reject Cho’s sexual behavior, because he told them he would refuse to continue to supply them with the drugs they were now addicted to.

The formal district attorney complaint states that Cho would meet with the women at his Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation clinics in Chambersburg and in Hampden Township, at times when no staff members were present. He also routinely met the “patients” away from the clinic for no medical reason, in their homes; cars and motel rooms.

Cho’s medical license has been suspended by the Pennsylvania State Medical Board:


  • Other  (2/12/2015)
  • Action Taken: Interim Suspension
  • Summary: Dr. Jay Jungho Cho; License # MD035027Y & # MK001003; NATURE OF COMPLAINT: The physician’s continued practice within the Commonwealth may present an immediate and clear danger to the public health and safety. ACTION TAKEN: The Pennsylvania Board of Medicine temporarily suspended the physician’s licenses pending a hearing.
  • State: Pennsylvania

Cho’s case is scheduled to begin on June 25.

In the meantime, here’s more detail in this despicable subject:

Our Observations:

Jay Jungho Cho MD is a prime example of what we in medicine call a Third World Assassin. This particular character is an emigrant from South Korea who attended Yonsei University in Seoul and graduated in 1968. He then came to the United States and learned – as so many foreign physicians do – that the American healthcare system is ripe for the pickings when it comes to cash and crime. There are fewer schemes in U.S. society easier to pull off than physician drug-dealing. One has to be ridiculously careless to get caught.

In a saner society, this medical misfit would be deported immediately after his prison sentence is over. But the U.S. does not deport criminal doctors. We reward them with a follow-up medical license in another state.

Never, ever forget this:

A criminal physician’s “right” to continue to play doctor, is of considerably more importance to agencies of authority, than public safety.

So stay tuned. Churlish Cho will once again be playing with people’s bodies for money in . . . oh, we give it 3 years, give or take.

Case Update:

Dr. Jay Jungho Cho, age 71 of Mechanicsburg, died Monday, November 9, 2015 at his home. His medical license had been suspended in February by the state medical board, which found that he was an “immediate and clear danger to public safety.”

    Sexual misconduct by doctors just goes on and on, and as you’ve pointed out, doctors pretty much get a pass. If licenses are revoked, they get them back later on. If the judicial system prosecutes, they get probation for actions that would have any other man thrown in prison.

  2. Ron Slade Sr. says:

    Any rule of law we might have applies more thoroughly to the poor and disenfranchised. The Judicial/law enforcement/ prison complex is money driven.
    Ted Kennedy’s immigration Act of 1965 actually discriminates against applicants for citizenship who are from the Western Hemisphere. This was done in the name of “fairness”.

  3. Dr. Jay Jungho Cho, age 71 of Mechanicsburg, passed away Monday, November 9, 2015 at home.
    Dr. Cho was a retired physician in the Central Pennsylvania Area. He was the founder of Rehab Medicine Associates, and played a instrumental role in the development of Rehab Hospital of Mechanicsburg. – I just saw this today, i am convinced he is responsible for the death of my mother. He had her on fentanyl patches, morphine lollipops and 120 oxycodones a month.

    Hi. I’m Anne and I just love this bad-doctor website. I’ve become a complete fanatic and read your very different angle on spooky healthcare daily. Nothing boring here! Thanks so much.
