Virginia Pediatrician Accused of Sexually Assaulting 2 Patients – NBC4 Washington

A pediatrician who has been treating children in Woodbridge, Virginia for decades is accused of sexually assaulting two young patients.

Leonard Lee Touchette, 71, of Woodbridge, was arrested Monday and charged with aggravated sexual battery and sexual penetration of objects, Prince William County police said.

An alleged victim told police that Touchette assaulted her more than once at the Potomac Pediatrics office between 2014 and November last year when she was between the ages of 11 and 17. The second alleged victim said he abused her more than once between 1992 and 1998 when she was between 2 and 8 years old.

Police began investigating the first case last November. The second case was subsequently identified.

A post on the Potomac Pediatrics website says the office, located on Opitz Boulevard, will be permanently closed Monday after 29 years “due to unforeseen circumstances.” Families can contact the children’s medical records office.

Touchette has been certified in pediatrics since 1985, state license information says.

He was released on a $ 5,000 bond. A court date is pending.
