Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Gothenburg

Convicted sex offender working as a doctor

It’s being reported that a convicted rapist, who is awaiting another court appearance, has been working as a doctor at a Swedish hospital.

Last year, the man appealed against a jail sentence he was given after being found guilty of sexually assaulting three young men.

But Stockholm’s appeal court says it was told the man would be in America until May so the process was slowed down. In fact though, according to the regional newspaper Göteborgs Posten, he has been working at a hospital in Gothenburg.

The hospital says it had no idea about the conviction, or the doctor’s previous jail sentence for raping a young girl and sexually abusing another young man.
