A dentist was put through hell after being charged with sexually assaulting a patient who, according to the defense counsel, "had a history of making false statements before her February allegations to police that Dr. Demos groped her and asked inappropriate questions about her sexual past during a visit to get an X-ray."
The dentist was acquitted following a non-jury trial.
How terribly easy it is to allege sexual assault. And what a terrible toll it takes on innocent men. Here one can only imagine the damage to this poor man's medical practice.
Will this man be one of the "rapists" that the feminist stats include in their discussions of "rapists" who escaped convicted? I suspect he will be, given that the sole criteria for inclusion in that list is that a woman accuses a man of rape. The truth of the allegation be damned.
And that tells you everything you need to know about their statistics and the rape hysteria they have concocted from whole cloth.
McKeesport dentist acquitted of sexual assault

A McKeesport dentist was found not guilty today of sexually assaulting a patient.
Norman W. Demos, 59, was acquitted in a non-jury trial before Common Pleas Judge Jill A. Rangos.
The defense argued that Dr. Demos' accuser, Susan Butler, had a history of making false statements before her February allegations to police that Dr. Demos groped her and asked inappropriate questions about her sexual past during a visit to get an X-ray.
Ms. Butler, 54, of McKeesport, has been charged with multiple retail thefts and pleaded guilty to theft and disorderly conduct charges last year.
"It was totally untrue," said Mr. Demos, who was choked up after the verdict. "This lady lied continuously, start to finish."
Mr. Demos' attorney, John Elash, said the allegations likely were a "copycat situation" because charges against another dentist had recently been in the news.
In January, Dr. Robert John Boyda Jr., an oral surgeon from Mt. Lebanon, was charged with sexually assaulting several young female patients while they were under anesthesia or recovering from surgery in his offices in Robinson and Scott. Dr. Boyda's trial is scheduled for April.
