A south suburban foot doctor was sentenced to six years in prison for sexually assaulting a 75-year-old patient in his Chicago office.

Dr. Anthony Overton of Olympia Fields 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.
