Podiatrist guilty of sexually assaulting patient


Dr. Anthony Overton faces at least a dozen years in prison. Prosecutors say the Olympia Fields podiatrist inappropriately touched the patient during an exam for foot and ankle pain in June of 2006.

Overton claimed it was part of his normal examination for a sprained ankle and he was checking for signs of cancer.

Three other women testified that Overton subjected them to inappropriate exams. He'll be sentenced late next month.
