LEBANON, Ind. (WISH) — The Indiana Medical Licensing Board on Thursday suspended the license of Dr. Jonathon Cavins, a Lebanon pediatrician accused of molesting at least five of his patients.
The suspension will last for 90 days.
According to the petition to suspend Cavins’ license submitted by Indiana attorney general’s office, patients said during routine physicals, the doctor offered them condoms, asked questions about their sexuality and touched them, telling the patients the touching was routine and part of the exam.
The allegations go back to 2016, according to lead investigator Detective Tony Bayles.
Bayles and the Boone County Prosecutor’s Office are asking anyone with a concern to come forward.
“It is still early on in the investigation; there could be obviously other victims out there. I know we have reached out in the past, and I know the Boone County prosecutor has also recently reached out the public, wanting parents to talk with their children if they have been a patient of Dr. Cavins and discuss those visits,” said Bayles.
Cavins was arrested on Feb. 22.
A jury trial is set for July 24.
