FAIRFIELD (CBS13) – A psychologist working at Travis Air Force Base is behind bars tonight, accused of sexually assaulting patients he was hired to help.
The doctor worked at the base hospital where they treat Air Force personnel and veterans with PTSD.
The article goes on to state the following:
Dr. Heath Sommer was arrested earlier this month and pleaded not guilty to multiple felony counts of sexual assault and sexual battery. On Monday, a complaint detailing the allegations was filed.
Prosecutors say Sommer abused his position of power by using a technique called exposure therapy on patients who had been sexually assaulted while deployed, according to court documents.
They also say his victims are now “even more traumatized” because of his actions.
CBS News reported that the abuse reportedly occurred between 2010 to 2016, and stated that Sommer is being held on $750,000 bail.
