William McClanahan Junior was convicted of sexual battery last March in District Court, after a patient at the hospital accused him of inappropriately touching her.

That means he does NOT admit guilt, but he acknowledges the state had enough evidence to convict him. His attorney says she believes McClanahan was falsely accused because of his gender.
