A Farmington Doc faces charges of assault, battery, and engaging in inappropriate behavior with a patient after an 18-year resident Farmington pressed charges against the physician.
Dr. Eliezer Monge, a doctor, working at a clinic in downtown Farmington, has been brought before the magistrates after one of his patients declared that during a consultation, the physician sexually assaulted her.
Monge’s victim is an 18-years old female from the same town. During the police interview, the young woman declared that after arriving at the clinic, the physician asked her to lay on the table. Monge’s victim added that after she had laid down on the consulting table, Monge began to touch her in a way that made her feel more than uncomfortable.
The young woman stated that at the time Monge consulted her, there was no one present in the consultation room, making her feel more uneasy. After a few minutes, the Farmington doc offered the young woman his hand, in order to help her sit up.
According to Monge’s victim, when she reached out to grab his hand, the doctor leaned in and tried to kiss the young woman on her lips.
Anticipating the physician’s intention, the woman turned her head in order to prevent the doctor from kissing her on the mouth. The victim declared that after the doctor saw her refuse his kiss, he grabbed her and kissed her on the neck.
The woman sprung from the consultation table and left the clinic in a hurry to report the harassing doctor to the authorities.
After hearing the young woman’s claims, the authorities brought Monge in for questions. However, the doctor denied all the woman’s claims. Meanwhile, a group of investigators collected DNA sample from the victim’s neck in order to confirm the woman’s statements.
The DNA sample collected from the victim was cross-referenced with another DNA sample taken from the Farmington doc. The analysis confirmed that the DNA traces of the young woman’s neck belong to Dr. Monge.
Eliezer Monge has been charged with assault, battery, and engaging in inappropriate behavior with his patient. The culprit was arraigned by a judge on the 2nd of December. In addition, the judged ordered that a $2,500 personal bond for Eliezer Monge, and set the trial for the 23rd of January.
