HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A Hartford jury has begun deliberating in the first case against a former East Hartford doctor charged with sexually assaulting several of his female patients.
Edwin Njoku (en-JOH’-koo) has denied allegations that he sexually assaulted five patients, and argued in this case the patient was the one making unwanted sexual advances.
The woman has testified that she was forcibly raped in Njoku’s office in October, 2011.
Charges are pending in the other four cases.
The allegations led the state Medical Examining Board to revoke Njoku’s license to practice medicine last year.
