Dr. William Thompson IV, 56, was arrested at his Newport Beach practice last week Wednesday, September 20 and faces eight counts of sexual penetration by means of fraudulent representation of professional purpose, three counts of sexual battery by fraud and two felony counts of forcible oral copulation, according to a press release issued by the DA’s office on Tuesday.

Six of Thompson’s patients disclosed that they had been sexually assaulted after learning that “tests” they had undergone between 2016 and 2020 were not medically necessary, according to the release.

Among the bogus procedures were unnecessary anal exams and “forcing a male patient to orally copulate him,” the release said.

Three more victims would be discovered in the subsequent “exhaustive investigation,” Newport Beach Police Chief Joe Cartwright said.

“Many of Dr. Thompson’s patients depended on him to provide life-saving care and he exploited those vulnerabilities for his own sexual gratification,” Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer wrote.

“Unfortunately, because of his specialized area of practice, Dr. Thompson put the very patients he was supposed to treat with professionalism and dignity, in a situation where they may have felt they had no other choice but to be subjected to sexual abuse in order to receive the treatment they needed to continue to live.”

“A doctor’s office should be a place where patients can safely share their most personal vulnerabilities without having to fear they will be preyed upon by a sexual predator,” Spitzer continued. “No one should be violated in such a shameful way by someone who has taken an oath to protect their patients.”

If convicted on all counts against him, Thompson would face 30 years to life plus 25 years, the press release stated.
