Sydney Cancer Doc Gets a Tushy Slap for Sexually Assaulting Lady MD

Dr John Kearsley

Dr John H. Kearsley

An Australian cancer specialist who spiked a colleague’s drink and then sexually attacked her, has been sent behind bars for a whopping 27 months.

Evidently, criminal physician discipline Down Under isn’t taken much more seriously than it is in the U.S.

After yammering for 3 years that he was “not guilty,” Doctor John Henry Kearsley finally got around to confessing in Sydney District Court that, well, yes he really did sneak an “intoxicating substance” into a woman’s glass of wine and indecently assault her, when she was visiting him one evening in back in November 2013.

In keeping with Australian law, the name of the victim is not publicized.

Kearsley was the Director of Radiation Oncology at Sidney’s St. George Hospital. He was also a professor of medicine at the University of NSW. He was arrested and charged with spiking a 32-year-old unnamed doctor’s drink with benzodiazepine.

Yes indeed. As you have seen a thousand times over on our Medical Miscreants site, even the highest educated people on the planet are fully capable of being struck dumber than a box of rocks.

During the trial a psychiatrist testified that Kearsley, age 63, suffered from “social anxiety, depressive disorder and alcoholism.” He was taking a sedative too, and that was the drug he slipped into the lady doctor’s wine. At sentencing, District Judge Penelope Hock told the court that Kearsley “was a highly regarded medical professional of exemplary character,” at the time of the crime. She believed the physician was genuinely sorry.

Well in that case judge, why punish him at all? He wears a lab coat.

Here’s another look at this stethoscope fruit-loop:
