STORY: "Ex-psychiatrist gets bail as he appeals assault conviction," published by CBC News on February 13, 2013;

GIST: "A former psychiatrist who was convicted last month of sexually assaulting three male patients will be released on bail pending his appeal. Aubrey Levin, 74, was sentenced to five years in jail for sexually assaulting three of his patients. Four other counts ended in mistrial because the jury was unable to reach a verdict on those after a three-month trial. Justice Donna Shelley said she granted Levin bail because he is not a danger to the public given his age and circumstances, and because he has a history of complying with bail conditions. The disgraced doctor’s lawyer filed an appeal minutes after his client was found guilty. Levin worked as a court-appointed psychiatrist. All three victims were referred to him by the court."
