Doc Says There’s A Reason His Semen Was On Patient’s Face

Dr. David Newman was arrested in January after a woman said he gave her a debilitating extra shot of morphine and proceeded to masturbate and ejaculate on her face.

But Newman offered another possibility when investigators came calling on Jan. 12, the New York Post reported Thursday.

Citing newly released court documents, the Post said Newman, 44, told cops: “I am embarrassed because I whacked off in the lounge, and it was possible that the ejaculate may have gone from my hands to the woman’s blanket .. Semen may have also transferred from my hand to her face during the time I treated her.”

According to the New York Daily News, Newman appeared in court Thursday where prosecutors said the sperm collected by his patient was a DNA match of the doc’s. The victim has since filed suit against Newman and the hospital, the News reported.

Three other women have since stepped forward accusing the doctor of groping their breasts during exams. At Thursday’s arraignment in Manhattan Supreme Court, Newman was charged with sexually abusing all four women, the New York Times wrote.

“Four young women who came to the hospital for medical treatment were sexually abused by the very doctor entrusted with their care,” the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., said in a statement, per the Times. “One was sedated to the point of being physically helpless — a nightmare scenario for any patient to endure.”

Newman’s attorney, Susan R. Necheles, said he would prove his innocence in a trial, the Times noted.
