EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - An Eau Claire pediatrician is accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old male patient.
Prosecutors have charged Dr. David Van de Loo with second-degree sexual assault and exposing himself.
Authorities began an investigation Aug. 31 after the boy's parents told police their son was sexually assaulted during a medical exam at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire. The health care provider said Van de Loo was terminated Sept. 12.
The Leader-Telegram reported Van de Loo was released on a $10,000 signature bond Thursday. As a condition of bond, the 60-year-old cannot have unsupervised contact with children other than his own.
In court, defense attorney Rich White said Van de Loo may have used poor judgment, but is innocent of sexual assault.
Van de Loo returns to court Oct. 29.
