Former Texas state psychiatrist Dr. Charles Fischer, who is a resident of Westlake, was convicted of multiple charges last Wednesday, November 16, which include four counts of sexual assault of a child, a second-degree felony, by a Travis County who deliberated for nine hours over two days before returning with the decision. The same jury will decide on Fischer’s sentence.
Fischer allegedly abused seven men, only one of whom wasn’t a patient of his but, rather, a seven- or eight-year-old neighbor of his previously.
Fischer originally faced 17 felonies—the most severe charge against him, aggravated sexual assault of a child, a first-degree felony, was dropped.
Monica Flores, one of the three attorneys who prosecuted the case against Fischer, focused on discussing the three accusers who appear on Fischer’s 2012 indictment.
The criminal penalties that can befall a person who had been convicted of a criminal offense can leave long-lasting damaging effects to said person’s reputation, especially since a criminal record can leave permanent marks on one’s personal and employment history.
