Doctor not required to register as sex offender with expungement

Posted on July 29th, 2011 No Comments

The lawyer for an Iowa doctor is defending the physician against charges related to failure to register as a sex offender in the Iowa Sex Offender Registry.

The 31-year old doctor was convicted of  fifth-degree non-consensual sexual contact with an underage girl in 2002.  At the time, the doctor was working as a resident at the Mercy Medical Center- North Iowa.  The doctor later had the conviction expunged and the charges removed from his record.

After moving out of the state and then returning in July, the doctor was charged with failure to register as a sex offender.  According to the doctor’s lawyer, registering as a sex offender would defeat the purpose of the man’s expungement.
