Gynecologist is guilty of abuse during exams

CLEVELAND (AP) — A gynecologist was convicted Wednesday of raping or otherwise molesting patients during examinations.

At trial, 33 women testified that Dr. Azzam Ahmed sexually abused them in his office.

After five days of deliberations, the jury found the doctor guilty of two counts of rape, seven of sexual battery and 11 of sexual imposition. He was acquitted on 33 other counts.

Ahmed, 57, faces three to 10 years in prison on each rape charge and one to five years on each count of sexual battery.
