Updated Friday, September 27, 2013 - 1:33pm
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.
