Manhattan gynecologist Dr. Robert Hadden was indicted on charges that he sexually assaulted six women between September, 2011 and June, 2012. Dr. Hadden, who had previously worked at New York Presbyterian Columbia Hospital, allegedly committed the sexual assaults at his private Washington Heights and Upper East Side offices. Most of the victims were pregnant at the time.
Assistant District Attorney Laura Millendorf said Haden would methodically molest and sexually assault his patients after the nurses left the examination room.
He was charged with five counts of criminal sex act, two counts of forcible touching and two counts of third degree sex abuse. These nine counts came after numerous patients filed civil lawsuits against him. Dr. Hadden plead not guilty and awaits trial.
