SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A Sacramento doctor has been convicted of sexually abusing two patients at a workers' compensation clinic.
The Sacramento Bee reports that a jury on Thursday convicted Dr. Scott Dodd Anderson of six counts of sexual abuse and acquitted him of two others.
The jury has not reached verdicts on seven other counts related to two other alleged victims.
The panel resumes deliberations on the remaining counts on Tuesday.
All of the alleged victims were patients who had suffered workplace injuries and were being treated at U.S. HealthWorks.
The case is a retrial initiated by prosecutors after a jury in November acquitted Anderson of two counts and failed to reach a verdict on 15 more.
