[Update] Surgeon sexually assaults patient in her 70s during an exam, linked to string of similar crimes

A former doctor in Texas was found guilty of aggravated sexual assault of an elderly person in connection with a series of incidents authorities claim involved nine of his patients.

According to KTVT, a jury convicted Donald Ozumba guilty at about 10:30 a.m. on Friday, one day after deliberations began.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, he was arrested in March 2017 after two former patients claimed he had inappropriate sexual contact with them during examinations at OSSM Orthopedics in McKinney.

One victim said at the time that she had recently visited the doctor for a sports-related injury. She claimed he exposed her genital in a supposed effort to “check for internal fluid.”

She alleged that Ozumba proceeded to penetrate her with his fingers — in front of her husband, who was sitting in the room — while he claimed to be massaging medication into her genital area.

Following this week’s conviction, Ozumba could spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Defense attorney Toby Shook made a statement on his client’s behalf insisting that the amount of evidence against Ozumba did not constitute guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

The criminal count with which he was charged ahead of this trial dealt only with his sexual assault of a septuagenarian during a 2016 consultation.

He is facing six additional charges that are currently pending an outcome in Collin County.

His medical license had already been suspended by the state’s medical board pending the resolution of the charges against him.
