Doctor sentenced to prison for sex crimes

A former doctor is looking at 45 days in prison for sex crimes against patients and employees.

86-year-old Pierre Leroy of Fair Hill, Maryland was arrested in May, 2012 after Newark police received a report of unlawful sexual contact against a patient.

Further investigation turned up a total of nine victims.

Leroy was also sentenced Friday to a year on probation and permanent suspension of his medical license. He's been ordered to pay restitution to his victims and register as a sex offender.

Attorney General Beau Biden says Leroy used his position of trust as a doctor to sexually abuse his victims instead of providing care. He also noted the victims can be assured that Leroy will never practice medicine again.
