Frankfor, IL pediatrician, Kishor N. Jain, is facing civil and criminal charges stemming from allegations that he sexually abused patients during office visits. State officials decided to continue withholding Jain’s license following his refusal to testify at a suspension hearing.
The suspension will continue pending the outcome of Jain’s criminal case, however, if he is found guilty of a sex crime, his license will be automatically revoked.
Many people place great trust and reliance on medical professionals to care for the health and well being of their patients. A violation of that trust can result in unmeasured devastation to families, especially when it comes to children. Victims of sexual abuse often don’t know where to turn. Attorney Joseph Klest has spent over 30 years representing victims of neglect in the State of Illinois. He was a co-author of the 2003 Child Protection Act, which lengthened the Illinois statute of limitations allowing sexual abuse victims more time to claim civil damages in certain cases.
