NY Doctor Faces Sexual Abuse and Rape Charges

Post Journal has reported that a local family doctor is facing a felony charge of third-degree rape after he was accused of having sexual intercourse with a patient while acting as their healthcare provider at Great Lakes Physician Practice located at 15 S Main St, Jamestown, NY 14701.

Oludotun O. Adegoke, 36, was taken into custody Friday, March 31, 2023, after Jamestown Police Department Detective Richard Hooks filed a felony complaint alleging the doctor “did intentionally and knowingly engage in sexual intercourse with the victim.” According to the complaint, the victim “was incapable of consent due to being the patient of the defendant who was acting as (the victim’s) health care provider at the time of the incident.”

The incident allegedly occurred at 11:30 a.m. on March 14 at GLPP, where Adegoke practiced, according to a phone listing of its medical providers. On Friday, police executed a search warrant at Adegoke’s Lakewood residence with the assistance of the Lakewood-Busti Police Department.

Adegoke has been charged with sex abuse and third-degree rape, a class E felony in New York, with a prison sentence of up to four years if convicted of the charge.

Can I Sue If Sexually Abused By My Doctor?

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is an experienced New York licensed attorney who represents sexual abuse victims. Laurence recently discussed the legal rights of victims sexually abused by a physician. He sought to answer the common question, "Can I sue if sexually abused by my doctor?"

"It is important that medical practices ensure that they maintain the highest standards of patient safety by properly vetting and monitoring their physicians. Medical practices should take steps to ensure that all physicians working in their office have the proper licensing and qualifications to provide the care necessary for their patients. Additionally, medical practices should take steps to ensure that all physicians working in their office have not been the subject of any disciplinary action or complaints due to inappropriate or unethical behavior."

"If a patient has been the victim of sexual abuse or misconduct by a physician, the patient has a number of legal rights available. The patient may file a civil lawsuit against the physician and the medical practice responsible for hiring and supervising the physician. The patient may be able to recover damages for physical, emotional, and psychological injuries resulting from the abuse. Additionally, the patient may also be entitled to punitive damages designed to punish the physician and medical practice for their negligence in hiring or supervising the physician. Victims should seek legal guidance from an experienced doctor sex abuse lawyer to learn more about their legal options."
