Orange County Anesthesiologist Sentenced for Sexual Assault on Patients
Orange County anesthesiologist, Dr. Yashwant Giri, 60 was sentenced to six months in jail and ordered to register as a sex offender after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting multiple patients while they were unconscious in a Placentia hospital.
Giri, an anesthesiologist at Placentia-Linda Hospital pleaded guilty to sexual battery, sexual penetration on an unconscious victim, sexual penetration by a foreign object and touching an intimate part of another person between February 1, 2009 to March 18, 2011.
Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert Fitzgerald sentenced Giri to jail rather than prison over the district attorney's objection. Giri will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life and will lose his California medical license.
