Regional health authorities on Crete have suspended a specialist doctor from a local state hospital after a misdemeanors court found him guilty of sexually assaulting a minor, it emerged on Tuesday.

Crete’s regional health authority asked the hospital, which was not identified, to immediately suspend the doctor, according to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.

It was unclear whether the boy was a patient.
