Hampton doc will pay fine after sexual exploitation
HAMPTON (AP) -
A northern Iowa doctor cited for inappropriate sexual conduct with patients and coworkers has agreed to give up his medical license and pay a $10,000 fine.
The Iowa Board of Medicine announced the settlement Tuesday with Brian Hansen, who had practiced in Hampton, Webster City, Charles City and Fairfield.
Hansen was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty in May to one count of sexual exploitation by a counselor or therapist. Prosecutors dropped seven other counts of sexual abuse and exploitation, drawing protests from some victims.
The medical board had suspended Hansen's license last year. It filed a complaint alleging that Hansen engaged in nonconsensual sex with coworkers and patients, masturbated in front of numerous women in his office, and made numerous improper sexual comments. His behavior went on for years.
