Florida Doctor Charged with Sexual Battery on Patients

A doctor in Ft. Myers has been arrested and charged with sexual battery on 3 girls under the age of 18. Dr. Edward German, a pediatrician, was arrested on three counts of sexual battery on a child under the age of 18. He reportedly examined the girls to see if they were still virgins, an exam that is unnecessary according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. The Florida Department of Children and Families reported the acts to police. Parental permission was given in at least one of the cases.
