 Doctor Convicted For Removing Genitals Without Consent

A former doctor who removed a patient's genitals without her consent was convicted by an Australian court on Thursday of maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm.

The doctor, who cannot be named because of a court order, told the New South Wales district court that he believed the operation conducted on Carolyn DeWaegeneire in August 2002 was necessary for medical reasons.

But DeWaegeneire, then a 58-year-old widow, told the jury she would never have consented to the operation in which a doctor removed her genitals, including her clitoris.

She said the doctor told her he was going to remove a lesion but never mentioned removing anything else.

The man will be sentenced at a later date.
