Dr. Syed Jaffery, a South New Jersey neurologist, is facing additional charges for inappropriately touching patients during exams after dozens of additional victims came forward after he was first-charged in December. The sexual contact happened during exams at Jaffery’s Premier Neurology office.
These additional charges include one count of sexual assault, 20 counts of sexual contact, 13 counts of harassment by offensive touching and three counts of lewdness. The cases involve 22 different victims.
Since Jaffery’s initial charge in December, 40 alleged victims have contacted police, with 28 of them giving statements. Jaffrey was released on $100,000 bail.
