NICOSIA-The Associated Press
Hürriyet photoCyprus police say a gynecologist has pleaded guilty to charges of raping and performing lewd acts on female patients he had sedated while examining them at his private clinic.
Police spokesman Christos Andreou says that six of the 44 charges to which the accused pleaded guilty on Monday involved raping patients, including two minors.
The 56-year-old man committed the crimes on 35 patients who visited him between July 2010 and Oct. 2011. Rape carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.
Andreou said investigators found a stash of photographs the man had kept of himself performing the lewd acts, which included placing his genitals in the victims' hands and mouths.
Police wouldn't name the accused before his sentencing next month.
