Oakland Doctor To Stand Trial In Petaluma Sex Sting Case

An Oakland doctor will have to stand trial in a sex sting case that was broadcast on Dateline NBC's "To Catch a Predator" program.

After eight days of testimony in a preliminary hearing that stretched over a two-month period, a Sonoma County judge ruled Tuesday that there was sufficient evidence for the case against Maurice Wolin to proceed.

The 49-year-old Wolin was one of 29 people arrested in the sting filmed in Petaluma last year.

Prosecutors say he intended to have sex with a 13-year-old girl, who turned out to be a decoy employed by the show.

Wolin's attorney maintains his client was entrapped.

Wolin has pleaded not guilty to one felony count of attempted lewd and lascivious conduct with a child.
