Toronto: Dr. George Doodnaught, 65, a Toronto anaesthesiologist¬†was sentenced to 10 years in prison Tuesday. While giving the judgement, Judge David McCombs¬†called the crimes “shocking and abhorrent”. As per the judgement, he will be banned from having a weapon and will be registered as a sex offender for life.

Doodnaught worked at North York General Hospital and was convicted in November of assaults that included kissing, fondling and performing other sexual acts on female patients. He had been victimizing his patients for four years before his cover was blown.  All the cases took place between 2006 and 2010. All women testified that they were conscious enough to be aware of what was happening, but were not able to move their limbs.
