Dentist Arrested For Sexually Abusing Patient, Again

According to The New York Post, a dentist is facing multiple allegations of sexual abuse from patients at Stamitoles Dental Center located at 1025 Creighton Rd, Pensacola, FL 32504. 

Despite being barred from treating women after multiple patients filed sex abuse complaints, Dr. Charles Stamitoles has been arrested again. This makes the fourth arrest in the past two months. As many as 22 allegations have been made by the Florida dentist. The Florida licensing officials filed an emergency June injunction intended to prevent Stamitoles from working with women. He has gained a reputation for exhibiting predatory and sexually aggressive behavior towards multiple patients. The most recent reported that he pulled her hand toward his genitals while giving her a shot. 

This is not the first set of allegations; Stamitoles is said to have lost his license in Georgia due to similar reports before moving his practice to Florida. It has also been reported that he paid settlements to several former employees that accused him of sexual misconduct. The dentist has paid many fines and endured suspensions yet has been able to retain his license allowing him access to more patients.

Filing Lawsuits for Victims Sexually Abused By a Dentist

Attorney Michael Haggard represents sexual assault victims in civil lawsuits in Florida. As an experienced Lawyer for sexual abuse by dentist, Michael has represented several victims helping them seek justice. He recently discussed when victims abused by a dentist could file lawsuits.

"Most people do not expect a dentist to violate their trust by committing a sexual assault, but sadly it happens. Lately, there have been reports of medical professionals sexually abusing patients across the nation. It is important that these professionals be held accountable for the trauma they have caused their victims."

"Criminal penalties for predatory doctors can be an important part of justice for patients. However, victims of sexual assault may be entitled to compensation through civil lawsuits as well. If the medical facility or the state's licensing officials failed in their legal duty to provide safety from such abuse, they could be held accountable. In cases where there was a history of abuse yet the abuse was permitted to continue having access to victims, the crime could be deemed foreseeable. Victims should explore their legal options by speaking with an experienced sexual assault attorney."
