Sexual Assault Charges Reduced in Plea Deal

A dentist named Dr. Maaen Aboafch pleaded guilty to reduced charges in a plea deal after a woman accused him of sexual assault during a job interview. The charges were reduced to disorderly conduct in exchange for the guilty plea and Aboafch was given probation as part of the deal.

According to the criminal complaint, an unidentified woman came to Aboafch’s office in New Garden on September 6 for a job interview. She said that the first part of the interview focused on dentistry, but that the nature of the encounter changed when the woman allowed the dentist to conduct an examination of a damaged filling. She told Deputy Chief Michael King, the leader of the investigation, that the dentist rubbed her shoulders, then touched her breasts, and continued to touch her and kiss her even after she told him to stop.

Aboafch also allegedly hugged her and tried to kiss her again before she left the office. The woman reported this incident to officers at the Southern Chester County Regional Police Department the next day.

Liability for sexual assault lawsuits is complex, so anyone thinking of taking legal action should speak with an experienced crime victim lawyer in their state.

Legal Options For Sexual Assault Victims

Guy D'Andrea, a lawyer for sexual abuse by doctors, adds some thoughts on the legal rights of sexual assault victims:

Many victims of sexual assault want to see the perpetrator criminally prosecuted. This can be an important part of moving on, but it’s also important for victims to consider how the civil court system can help them. Sexual assault victims often have a case for a lawsuit against the perpetrator and possibly the perpetrator’s employer or another third party who enabled the abuse. For example, an employer may be held liable if they were negligent in failing to properly run a background check before hiring an employee.

Liability for sexual assault lawsuits is complex, so anyone thinking of taking legal action should speak with an experienced crime victim lawyer in their state.
