Trial for surgeon accused of sexual assault set for 2015
Doctor Romelito Cruz won’t face trial for sexual assault for another year.
The ear, nose, and throat surgeon’s case has been delayed several times, but a not guilty plea has been entered and trial date set for February 2015.
Cruz is accused of innappropriately examining female patients, stemming from two complaints in 2007 and 2008, with one involving a 16 year old girl.
He was suspended for six months in 2012/2013 and a chaperone would have to be present whenever Delacruz was doing exams on females.
