Dr. Kevin Antario Brown, 40, the son of former Bermuda Premier Ewart Brown, was taken into custody after the jury’s verdicts were read. The eight-man, four-woman jury in his trial deadlocked on eight other counts, and a
mistrial was declared on those charges.

Brown faces nearly 20 years in prison, and his sentencing was tentatively set for Sept. 21.

Prosecutors said Brown performed unnecessary breast and pelvic exams on 11 patients, including a 15-year-old girl.

The victims also said Brown flirted with them, asked them out on dates and made unnecessary comments.

Each one of them told someone what had happened before eventually going to police, including one who told police she was raped after Brown visited her at her apartment, Wise said.

Knowing that they had to come forward “once they knew they weren’t alone,” the majority of the victims contacted authorities after Brown was charged with sexually assaulting one female patient and an undercover officer who had been sent into his office, the prosecutor said.

The crimes occurred between 2005 and 2008, according to the criminal complaint, while Brown was working at the Crenshaw Expo Medical Center in Los Angeles, along with two other facilities in Los Angeles and Glendale.

Brown’s attorney, Edi M.O. Faal, countered that there were inconsistencies in the women’s stories, noting that none of the patients were ever heard screaming or telling the doctor to stop.

Brown’s attorney accused an undercover police detective of lying that the doctor had held her breasts during an examination involving a problem with her ankle. He noted that it was “nowhere on (an audio) tape.”

      Bill –

      You’re an idiot.

      I investigate bad doctors for a living. The ugly reality is, the overwhelming number of lab coat lunatics are white males.

      Take a look at “America’s Dumbest Doctors” for a reality check.

    That now makes Brown eligible for the wall of shame known as the National Practitioner Data Bank. It isn’t a small fraternity – 237,000 “dangerous” or “questionable” MDs over the last two and one-half decades, including 204 for Murder.

    The “Anthrax Terrorist? A doctor.

    Two of the last five Mass hooting suspects? Doctors.

    5,200 physicians in prison, as of last week.

    The four worst child molesters in U.S. history? Pediatricians in Ohio, California & Delaware.

    Does any other profession generate these kinds of numbers?

    Not even close.
