    Sometimes.... sometimes you wish death by hanging were still an option.

    You cannot give life sentences/the death penalty for rape (much as I wish you could give the former - I don't believe in the latter under any circumstances).

    If you did that, then the sicko would have no logical, legal reason not to kill his victims (remove the only eye witness).

    I don't dispute the testamony of the victims, but two points seem strange to me - one, there was evidence that the drugs used to sedate patients during such operations has been known to cause hallucinations in some patients and his defense was that none of these assaults actually took place - two, I personally find it remarkable and hard to credit that 21 patients could be assaulted in this manner in active operating theatres, often with claims that the Dr. put his penis in the mouths of the victims and other incredible claims.

    I believe, if true, that the hospital and all the staff who were involved have to be somewhat complicite in some of these cases - the doctor was accused of these crimes at the hospital level, prior to the police becoming involved so how the hell was he allowed to continue without some oversight of his actions in the operating room - even just video targetted to where he worked would have saved several patients from this trauma.
    It's an oddly specific accusation to be volleyed against one specific person, though. Are there numerous other instances of patients on this particular anesthetic dreaming they were molested?

    21 victims. 10 year sentence. WTF?

    That's less than 6 months per victim.

    No, not numerous - in fact, it's relatively rare, but it does exist. I think the judge got it right when stating that it is so rare it is beyond believability that 21 instances would occur with one doctor. I think it was a convenient defense, once caught - likely he was aware of the incidents through professional journals and thought he could get away with it - like most criminals, if you get away with it once, you try again and again until you're caught.
