Former Newark physician Pierre Leroy, 86, has been sentenced for committing sex crimes against multiple Newark-area victims, including patients, employees, and tenants.
Leroy was arrested on May 4, 2012 after Newark Police received and investigated a report from a patient at his Newark practice of unlawful sexual contact by the doctor during a medical examination.
Following Leroy’s arrest the Attorney General’s Office petitioned the Secretary of State and President of the Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline to immediately suspend Leroy’s medical license, and they ordered the emergency suspension of his license on May 8.
The criminal investigation, conducted by the Newark Police Department in coordination with the Attorney General’s Office and the Division of Professional Regulations, ultimately led to the identification of nine separate victims and resulted Leroy’s indictment in July, 2012 on multiple counts of Unlawful Sexual Contact, Attempted Unlawful Sexual Contact, and Sexual Harassment.
Leroy,, of Fair Hill, Md., pled guilty to nine counts of Unlawful Sexual Contact 3rd Degree on April 23, 2013.
Leroy was sentenced to 45 days in prison followed by one year of probation, ordered him to permanently forfeit his medical license, ordered him to register as a sex offender and participate in sex offender treatment, pay restitution to the victims, and have no contact with the victims.
