NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The Uptown plastic surgeon indicted on rape and video voyeurism charges has been ordered to stay away from his children, according to our partners at NOLA.com-The Times-Picayune.

Doctor Ali Sadeghi cannot see his children while he awaits trial later this summer.

A three-judge panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal found that Criminal Court Judge Laurie White should have put a protective order in place barring Sadeghi from his children due to the nature of the accusations against him.

Sadeghi has pleaded not guilty to the charges. His defense team says the doctor is disappointed in the decision and they plan to appeal to the Louisiana Supreme Court.
