Fake doctor sentenced for sexually assaulting patient

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A Douglasville man who posed as a doctor and violated a patient pleaded guilty to sexual battery charges in court Monday. He was sentenced to serve 15 years in prison.

According to the Cobb County District Attorney, 50-year-old Patrick Ogbebor posed as a physician at the Mosthouse Lab Test and Healthcare Clinic in Smyrna when he sexually assaulted a 21-year-old woman during a physical exam needed as part of her immigration process. 

Officials say Ogbebor took the victim into an exam room where he inappropriately touched her, continuing even after the woman said she did not feel comfortable with what he was doing. After the exam, the woman called Smyrna police to report the assault.
