An anesthesiologist from Orange County plead not guilty on felony charges that he molested two female patients while they were unconscious at Placentia-Linda Hospital, reports KCBS. Yashwant B. Giri, 58, was seen by his nurse molesting a 16-year-old girl, and later, a 39-year-old woman, according to LA Now. His nurse reported him to authorities and he was arrested on May 5. He now faces charges of "sexual battery on an institutionalized victim and sexual penetration by a foreign object of an unconscious victim," says KCBS.

If convicted, he could face up to eight years in jail.
