Ex-doc gets up to 95 years for drugging 3 women, abusing 2

Posted: Updated:

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania doctor who has since lost his medical license will spend 30 to 95 years in prison for drugging two women and a teenage girl at his home, then sexually abusing two of them.

Former Chambersburg doctor Sohael Raschid told a Franklin County judge on Friday that he gave the wrong dose of drugs to one victim, nothing more.

But a jury last month found the 60-year-old defendant guilty of drugging three of four accusers, and sexually assaulting two of the three. The accusers included a 13-year-old and a 19-year-old.

Prosecutors say the encounters happened at Raschid's home in Hamilton Township in 2014.

Judge Jeremiah Zook told Raschid: "You're not a rapist who happens to be a doctor. You were able to rape because you are a doctor."
