A Memphis surgeon who works at the Midtown Surgery Center has been charged with 9 crimes including sexual battery and attempted rape.
The attorney for a Mid-South surgeon whose nurses accused him of sexual battery and attempted rape says his client is depressed and getting counseling. Tuesday, a judge set a May trial date for Dr. Brett Sokoloff.
This man's attorney unfortunately makes him look guilty of the actions he's been accused of.
The defense seems to rely on reaching those who accept excuses for those who commit sex crimes. Since the alleged crimes occurred over a 2 year period against 3 nurses, this means that the man wasn't liable for a pattern of behavior when he was capable of doing his job -- a very precise and demanding job.
If depression was a factor, then it seems to be a motive for trying to get the unwilling to submit to him.
