Probation Violation Hearing Scheduled for Former Doctor Convicted of Sexual Battery of Patient

Posted by Fay Arfa | Jul 19, 2016 | 0 Comments

A 47-year-old man who had his doctor's license revoked after being convicted in 2013 of sexually abusing a patient at a Northridge hospital is alleged to have violated the terms of his probation by continuing to perform medical exams, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced today.

Deputy District Attorney Rena Durrant said Kevin Pezeshki of Tarzana pleaded no contest on Sept. 11, 2013, to one felony count of sexual battery by fraud in case LA071845. Pezeshki was then sentenced to three years formal probation, a year of counseling and lifetime sexual offender registration.

A probation violation hearing is scheduled tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. in Department E of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Van Nuys Branch.

The defendant had been ordered to obey all laws as a condition of probation after admitting to inappropriately touching a female patient during an exam in 2008 at Northridge Hospital Medical Center.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Gregory Dohi revoked Pezeshki's probation on June 27 based on allegations that the defendant performed an ultrasound on a female patient although he no longer has a medical license, the prosecutor said. The defendant also is reported to have conducted an ultrasound on another woman, the prosecutor added.

The two pregnant women who allegedly received the ultrasound examinations were patients at San Joseph Medical Clinic in Panorama City.

If found in violation of probation, Pezeshki could face up to four years in state prison.
