Dr. Scott Takasugi pled no contest to two felony counts of

Sacramento District Attorney Jan Scully announced today that Dr. Scott Takasugi pled no contest to two felony counts of sexual exploitation of a patient by a physician. Takasugi faces a possible three years and eight months in state prison and has agreed to surrender his medical license. He will also be required to register as a sex offender for life. The plea involved two counts relating to two different victims. Takasugi was a Kaiser Permanente plastic surgeon.

The first victim became a patient of Takasugi’s and was scheduled for cosmetic surgery in March of 2006. Just prior to surgery, she was placed in a pre-op room and
given medication to relax her in preparation for her procedure. Takasugi entered the room soon after and sexually assaulted the victim.

The second victim was scheduled for a cosmetic procedure in May of 2006. At her pre-op visit, Takasugi told the victim to remove her underwear and proceeded to sexually assault her and take graphic pictures during the offense.

Deputy District Attorney Keith Hill stated, “This is a case where a doctor used his trusted profession to sexually exploit his patients. With the defendant’s medical license revoked and the requirement for him to register as a sex offender, he can never again use his position to victimize future patients.

Takasugi will be sentenced on October 9, 2009 in Department 21 of the Sacramento County Superior Court.
