A former Mount Sinai Hospital ER doctor in New York City had quite an explanation for why his sperm may have landed on the face of a patient who accused him of sexual abuse during an examination of her shoulder.
Dr. David Newman was arrested in January after a woman said he gave her a debilitating extra shot of morphine and proceeded to masturbate and ejaculate on her face.
But Newman offered another possibility when investigators came calling on Jan. 12, the New York Post reported Thursday.
Citing newly released court documents, the Post said Newman, 44, told cops: “I am embarrassed because I whacked off in the lounge, and it was possible that the ejaculate may have gone from my hands to the woman’s blanket .. Semen may have also transferred from my hand to her face during the time I treated her.”
According to the New York Daily News, Newman appeared in court Thursday where prosecutors said the sperm collected by his patient was a DNA match of the doc’s. The victim had previously filed suit against Newman and the hospital, the News reported.
