On Tuesday, trial was supposed to begin for a Lee County doctor accused of inappropriately touching three patients while they were under anesthesia but a plea deal was reached.

In 2017, a nurse reported Asif Choudhury after she saw him touch a woman’s “private parts” while she was unconscious during a colonoscopy.

In court, Choudhury plead guilty to sexually assaulting three women and was sentenced to 364 days in Lee county jail as well as two years of community control supervision.

Choudhury is also required to attend ten years of sexual offender probation and barred from any contact with victims.
He must also surrender his medical license in all 50 states.
