FORT STOCKTON, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – New details have been released regarding a physicians assistant that has been suspended and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.
According to a report from the Texas Medical Board, a woman brought her 5-year-old daughter for a wellness checkup at a health facility in Fort Stockton on July 23, 2018.
During the examination, PA Alberto Sauceda instructed the woman to pull her daughter’s underwear down, the report reads.
The mother, according to the report, objected to the examination of her daughter’s genitals, but Sauceda continued and claimed it was a part of the girl’s wellness check.
The report states that the mother complied but felt “extremely uneasy” about the examination by Sauceda.
Following the report, the TMB determined that Sauceda never explained what he was doing to either the child or the parent, he continued with the exam despite objections from the parent and he did not ask another child, who was in the room, to leave during the exam.
Furthermore, the TMB found that Sauceda did not document the exam in the child’s medical records.
He was placed on administrative leave two days after the exam, the report found. Sauceda was fired from the clinic a short time later.
Sauceda was indicted on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child by a Pecos County grand jury on April 4 of this year.
The TMB has also temporarily suspended Sauceda’s PA license saying he breached the trust placed in him as a medical professional and that his behavior, “constitutes imminent peril to the public health, safety or welfare,” the findings read.
