Physician Investigated For Sexually Assaulting, Harassing Women

The first cry for help came in April 2013. A woman filed charges against her employer Dr. Nosrat Massih, 83.

A search warrant tells a graphic story of how Massih allegedly sexually assaulted the new employee after taking her out to dinner.

The search warrant said he brought the victim to his condo under false pretenses, and against her will began to touch her and take pictures.

When the victim reported this to police, investigators found this victim wasn't alone. At least four other women claimed Massih touched or took pictures of them without their permission.

Local attorney Jim Schaefer said it's a crime more people are standing up against.

"The county attorney's office takes it very, very seriously, so does the city prosecutors office. And more and more, people that suffer this type of abuse are coming forward, and the courts and the judges are enforcing their rights, very, very vigorously," said Schaefer.

The penalty, if found guilty, can be hefty.

"There's a civil side and there is a criminal side. and the civil side would reach the pocket and make that person pay some money," said Schaefer.

Massih has been charged with felony-sexual assault and felony-tampering with an informant. He has since bailed out on a 20-thousand dollar bond.

We reached out to Massih's lawyer, but they declined to comment.
