Five-Year-Sentence For Former Doctor

A former East Hartford doctor has been sentenced to five years in prison for sexually assaulting a patient and witness tampering.  Edwin Njoku was convicted of fourth degree sexual assault,  but acquitted of rape in the case.

Njoku himself did not speak on his own behalf in Hartford Superior Court,  but there were supporters on hand,  including some former patients.

His lawyer asked that Njoku be released on bond pending appeal.
