A DOCTOR said to be obsessed with child porn is facing a lengthy jail term after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old patient by pretending to perform an abortion.

Rashid Sandhu, who was working as an A&E doctor at the James Paget University Hospital (JPH) at Gorleston, Norfolk, admitted having a stash of more than 170 pornographic images of children on his home computer.

It is thought Sandhu's unhealthy obsession with the child images led him to sexually assault a teenage girl after she had gone to see him about stomach and urinary pains.

He inserted tubes in the girl and rubbed her breast with gel after tricking her into thinking she needed an abortion and taking her to his office at the hospital.

He got the girl to pose like one of the pornographic images on his computer and also asked if he could take a photo of her naked.

The career of the once well-respected doctor, who is estimated to have earned more than £75,000 a year, now lies in ruins after he was convicted by a Norwich Crown Court jury of sexually assaulting the girl following an eight-day trial. He will be sentenced on Friday May 23.
