Doctor Guilty of Rape Gets No Jail Time

Published on September 6th, 2018

ABC News reported that Dr. Shafeeq Sheikh will not go to jail after being convicted of sexually assaulting his patient who was immobilized in her hospital bed.  Sheikh was found guilty of second degree sexual assault but his sentence was limited to 10 years probation.

Sheikh was charged after his DNA connected him to the attack.  Sheikh admitted on the witness stand to engaging in sexual intercourse with the patient but said the encounter was consensual.  Of course, doctors cannot have sex with their patients and his claim that the patient gave consent is ridiculous.  The victim was immobilized by medications and drifting in and out of consciousness, according to court records.  The victim testified that she repeatedly pushed the call button for help, but witnesses testified that the button had been unplugged from the wall, The Chronicle reported.

“It immediately sunk in that something terrible had happened and I was scared for myself,” Sheikh said in court. “You’re not supposed to have sex with a patient. That’s part of medical ethics,” he said in court about what he described as a one-minute interlude, according to The Chronicle.

His defense lawyers blamed the victim!

“Here we have this Latina woman with her fake boobs that came onto that little nerdy middle-aged guy, and he lost his mind,” Andrews said during her closing argument, The Chronicle reported.  Disgusting.
