Physician re-tried for misconduct over chest examination

A family physician is up for trial a second time after his original trial was deemed inadequately represented and therefore tried with too light a sentence. The doctor was reported to have indecently examined two women's breasts on two separate occasions, and made suggestive comments. He was prosecuted for his misconduct and had to undergo 12 months of general practice training with conditional registration. The lawyer for the prosecution justified re-trying the doctor out of duty to protect future female patients.
