cosmetic surgeon accused of inappropriately touching patients

Asians Behaving Badly... inappropriate touching edition! Last week in Stockton, Calfornia, a criminal grand jury handed down a 67-count indictment, all felonies, against former cosmetic surgeon Peter Chi, who is accused of inappropriately touching dozens of his patients, many while unconscious: Indictment accuses Tracy cosmetic surgeon of 67 felony counts.

Chi is accused of 51 counts of sexual battery by fraud, 15 counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object while the victim was unconscious, and one count of lewd act upon a child.

According to the indictment, he inappropriately touched 36 women -- including a 15 year old -- between May 2007 and January 2008. Chi has been under investigation since September 2007, after one patient reported being abused, but there wasn't enough evidence to proceed in that case.

He originally was charged with seven counts of sexual battery by fraud, one count of sexual battery and three counts of rape with a foreign object on eight victims in a complaint filed in February. The number quickly swelled to 36 after word of the accusations surfaced.

Guess what? Your cosmetic surgeon might be a perv. If eventually convicted, Chi apparently could face 87 years in prison and would have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
