Man accused of fake medical examinations

Updated:

NEWBURYPORT, Mass. (AP) – A Salisbury man has been charged with pretending to be a medical professional so he could recruit young women for invasive medical exams that he secretly videotaped.

Prosecutors also allege 44-year-old David E. Anderson, who has a home in Newtown, Conn., secretly videotaped nude adolescent female relatives.

The Newburyport Daily News reports Anderson was held on $500,000 bail at his arraignment Monday on charges of unlawfully recording a nude or partially nude person and possession of child pornography.

Police say Anderson recruited women through Craigslist and offered money to be examined by medical students for research. Instead, Anderson conducted what he called preliminary examinations.

Authorities say Anderson may have fooled at least 20 women over several years.

His court-appointed attorney said bail was excessive and his client is not a flight risk.
