Massachusetts Doctor Sentenced in Sexual Assault Case

A Framingham, Mass. doctor will spend up to 7 years in state prison after his conviction last week on charges that he sexually assaulted a minor over a four-year period, the Middlesex district attorney’s office said, as reported by today’s Boston Globe. Manuel Raagas, 63, was convicted of two counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, two counts of indecent assault and battery on a person over 14, and one count of rape. A Middlesex Superior Court judge sentenced Raagas yesterday to 5 to 7 years in prison, followed by 5 years of probation with several conditions, including registering as a sex offender. Prosecutors alleged that Raagas began groping his victim in 1997 and committed rape in 2001. There is no indication that Raagas assaulted any of his patients, District Attorney Gerard T. Leone Jr. said in yesterday’s statement, according to the Globe.
