Dentist convicted on multiple counts of sexual battery

A dentist in Woodland, CA was convicted of multiple counts of sexual battery after patients came forward alleging that he had groped them during exams. Many women came forward against Dr. Mark Anderson, but due to statute of limitations expiration or  lack of evidence in some cases, he was only charged with 19 counts of sexual battery, most of which involved skin to skin contact.

After a lengthy trial, a jury found Anderson guilty on 12 of the 19 counts. He was sentenced to six years in prison in April 2009.
