Sentencing of Kevin Brown is delayed

The doctor son of former Premier Ewart Brown had his sentence for sexually assaulting patients delayed yesterday, because he is requesting a retrial.

Kevin Antario Brown was convicted by a jury in August of committing sex attacks on nine female patients under the guise of breast and pelvic examinations.

He dismissed the allegations as lies, and his lawyer, Edi Faal, questioned the credibility of the witnesses.

However, he was found guilty of 21 counts including sexual battery by fraud, sexual exploitation by a physician, sexual penetration by a foreign object and committing a lewd act.

The 40-year-old faces a maximum term of 16 years and ten months in state prison. He was supposed to be sentenced yesterday, but the hearing was delayed because Mr Faal wishes to argue for a retrial.

According to Deputy District Attorney Ann Marie Wise, Mr Faal plans to argue once again that the victims were not credible, but did not file his motion in time for it to be heard yesterday.

The matter has now been rescheduled for November, and according to Ms Wise: “Should the motion be denied, we will proceed directly to sentencing at that time.”
