UPDATE: Additional Patients Sue Dr. Pierre Leroy, who has been Indicted for Unlawful Sexual Contact

UPDATED – 11-19-12- Two additional former patients of a New Castle County doctor are suing him for sexual assault.  These victims are a mother and daughter who sought treatment from Dr. Pierre Leroy in March of 2011.  The women read about earlier reports in May and June that told them there were other victims and gave them the strength to come forward.   Leroy was indicted last spring and his license to practice medicine suspended on May 8.

Dr. Leroy turned himself in last week and was released after posting $40,000 bail.

    Why the heck is someone that is 84 years old still working? Much less working as a Doctor? At that age what can he do?

  3. flylady says:

    I have to agree with JoeJoe on this one…although clearly the real subject of this story is the troubling charges. With all due respect to the elderly (we will all be there someday, after all), I would also question practicing medicine at age 84. While everyone ages differently and a person of this age may still be able to contribute to the profession in a tutorial/consulting role, I’m not so sure about the actual practice of surgery! Would you want YOUR neurosurgery performed by an octogenarian??

    I used to work at St. Francis Hospital just over 32 years ago. Dr. LeRoy was accused of this same thing! Once a sex addict, always a sex addict. This didn’t surprise me at all when I heard his name on the radio today. Why wasn’t something done to him 32 years ago? Now, a young woman has been a victim of this sex addict. What a shame!

    @JAFaupel- the medical society probably “lost” the fax regarding the St. Francis situation and thats why he is still practicing.

  6. justice says:

    Wait till he dies,then fine him 60 million dollars,and take away all his patients.
