DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - The case of a former doctor accused of
groping a female patient during a 2006 emergency room visit has
gone to trial.

The patient said Gregory Johns entered her exam room alone and
groped her while she was unable to defend herself. The patient was
19 at the time of the incident and said she was taken to Southeast
Alabama Medical Center in a heavily intoxicated state on Nov. 4,
2006, when Johns touched her.

Johns was arrested about a week after the incident. The patient
is one of two females who claimed they were physically groped by
Johns during emergency room visits. Another female is expected to
testify on Wednesday about a September 2007 incident. Johns'
license to practice medicine has been revoked by the Alabama Board
of Medical Examiners.
