Lismore doctor faces 60 charges of sexual, indecent assault
TUESDAY 11.55am: ANOTHER alleged victim of Lismore gynecologist Dr Glenn Taylor has come forward to police, it has been heard in Lismore Local Court this morning.
Two fresh charges have been laid on the Richmond Hill 62-year-old, including aggravated sexual assault and aggravated indecent assault under authority.
He now faces 60 charges, which include 18 counts of sexual assault and 42 counts of indecent assault allegedly made on female patients.
Dr Taylor did not appear before the court and the matter was adjourned by Magistrate David Heilpern due to the new charges coming to light, for which a brief of evidence has yet to be lodged.
"My understanding is both parties are in a position where an extra period of negotiations is now favourable given these additional charges… (as) another complainant has come forward," DPP prosecutor Danielle Collins told Magistrate Heilpern.
"(However) the majority of the brief has been served."
Magistrate Heilpern ordered the balance of the brief be lodged by May 23 with the matter to return to Lismore Local Court on June 6.
Dr Taylor is excused if legally represented.
TUESDAY 8.40am: A LISMORE doctor accused of sexual and indecent assault on a number of his patients spanning several years is back before Lismore Local Court this morning.
Dr Glenn Allan Taylor, 62, was arrested by police in November last year after a search warrant was executed at his Uralba St clinic.
He has since been charged with 17 counts of aggravated sexual assault under authority, and 41 counts of indecent assault under authority.
The alleged offences go back to 1993, and concern at least 18 patients.
Dr Taylor, who is on conditional bail, did not appear in Lismore Local Court at the last scheduled court date on March 21.
He is required to face court today.
