On June 14, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced that today a dentist has been charged with sexually abusing nine patients at his Los Angeles dental office.

Emad Fathy Moawad, 50, of Marina del Rey faces nine counts of sexual battery by restraint, three counts of sexual penetration by use of force and one count of attempted sexual penetration by use of force.

According to the criminal complaint, the charged assaults happened between 2013 and 2018 at the dentist’s office on Beverly Boulevard and Normandie Avenue. The victims ranged in age from 27 to 73 years old.
