Child porn doc caught

An Upper Austrian doctor is accused of having molested a young patient.

The man was arrested yesterday (Weds), local officials said today. They explained investigators became active after having received tip-offs accusing the medic of sexual abuse.

Prosecutors in Wels announced that the general practitioner was accused of having produced pornographic images of children for years. The man is also suspected of having molested at least one child, a boy aged seven.

Juridical authorities said that the accused – who faces several years in jail – admitted most of the offences he is suspected of after being informed that pornographic photographs were found at his home.

State prosecutors announced that the defendant remains in custody awaiting a trial. They did not reveal where the man lives and worked.
