The doctor who is facing rape charges assaulted one of his alleged victims multiple times and threatened to turn her in to immigration authorities if she told anyone, according to court documents filed Wednesday.
The three women who filed complaints said they were afraid to come forward with accusations against 60-year-old Dr. Scott Anderson, an occupational medicine specialist at a U.S. Health Works clinic in Sacramento, because they feared it would jeopardize their workers compensation claims.
One alleged victim, who has not been publicly identified due to the nature of the accusations, told police she was first sexually assaulted by Anderson on July 15, 2009. Anderson allegedly molested her and said "he would call the Immigration Service" on her if she told anyone about it.
Less than a month later, the same woman went back to Dr. Anderson and brought her daughter inside the exam room with her. The woman said Anderson fondled her in the same way in front of her daughter.
In a visit to the office in the next month, the woman alleges Dr. Anderson lifted up her clothes and unbuttoned her pants while he was masturbating.
That same month, the woman said she went back to his office for the fourth and final time, where Anderson raped her, according to court documents.
In November, the woman complained to a manager at the clinic and was told that he had already been fired, so she went to police and discovered that two other woman had detailed similar allegations against the doctor.
The clinic refused to say why Anderson was fired from the clinic or whether complaints had been filed against him.
Anderson is facing 30 charges in total, ranging from sexual exploitation by a physician, rape, to attempted sodomy.
Anderson posted $750,000 bail Tuesday night and was released.
