A Nebraska gynecologist entered a no contest plea to a charge that he offered money in exchange for sex with a former patient.
55-year-old Navid Yazdi of Grand Island was arrested earlier this month after a 23-year-old woman told police Yazdi had repeatedly tried to persuade her to engage in prostitution.
Yazdi was fined $1,000 following his plea Monday in Hall County Court. He apologized to his friends and colleagues during his court appearance, saying he never intended to engage in pandering.
Since being arrested, Yazdi has been on a leave from the Grand Island Clinic and St. Francis Medical Center.
