Dr. Aubrey Levin: Witness says sex assault by psychiatrist prompted suicide attempt: Calgary Herald.

STORY: "Witness says sex assault by psychiatrist promted suicide attempt: Levin trial." published by the Calgary Herald on November 23, 2012.

GIST:  "A Calgary man says he visited several hospital emergency rooms for help, then attempted suicide by slicing his wrists and taking an overdose of medication, two days after former forensic psychiatrist Dr. Aubrey Levin sexually assaulted him during an appointment. G.G. told Crown prosecutor Dallas Sopko on Friday that Levin suddenly and unexpectedly grabbed his testicles while he was seeing the doctor for depression. He said the incident on March 27, 2009, lasted about 10 seconds. He also got no explanation from Levin beforehand what he was about to do and nothing afterward as to why he did it. "I looked away and grimaced in pain," said GG. "I turned to the side, then he stopped. By the time I had turned, he had moved straight to my feet. I was surprised to see him move that fast. The witness said Levin immediately grabbed a pen from his pocket after he touched his testicles, then began running it up and down the souls of his feet to test his reflexes, as if nothing has happened. G.G. said he had had testicular examinations previously, but they were much shorter and did not involve pain. He said Levin was not using gloves and that all other doctors had used such protection."
