South Texas Doctor Convicted of Sexually Assaulting Patient



    A South Texas dermatologist faces up to 20 years in prison after being convicted of sexually assaulting a female patient.

    The penalty phase continues Tuesday for 61-year-old Dr. Calvin Day of San Antonio.

    Day was convicted Monday of assaulting the victim in August 2010. The now-48-year-old woman says she visited Day's office on a Sunday for a follow-up after having a Botox treatment. She says she was kissed and groped by Day.

    Prosecutors later Monday called more than a dozen other ex-patients or former Day employees who allege he made inappropriate advances to them.

    Day, who has no previous felony convictions, could get probation. He's being held without bond during the punishment phase.

    His medical license was suspended amid the investigation.

    In North Texas on Monday, Carrollton police said they arrested a chiropractor accused of sexually assaulting one of his patients. In April, a McKinney chiropractor was sentenced to 23 years in prison after he was convicted of sexually assaulting several of his patients, including a child.
