Gainesville man indicted for sexual battery, impersonating doctor
News


GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- A man has been indicted after police said he misrepresented himself as a doctor and sexually assaulted a victim.

Gainesville Police said that they first received a report of a sexual assault on March 26 when they were called to Northeast Georgia Medical Center where the victim went after the incident.

According to the report, Jamieson L. Allen, 48, of Gainesville, Ga. allegedly encountered the victim and solicited the person for employment to move furniture at a residence.

The report states that the two traveled to a residence in Gainesville where the job was supposed to take place.

While at the residence, however, the report states Allen represented himself as a doctor conducting medical work.

Allen had previously worked at Northeast Georgia Medical Center as a licensed nurse.

But police said Allen lied about having another kind of medical license.

While pretending to be a doctor, Allen allegedly performed an exam of the 19-year-old male victim that turned into a non-consensual sexual encounter.

"This led to some kind of exam being done of the victim," Lt. Michael Martin of the Gainesville Police Department said. "During this time, there's an allegation that a non-consensual sexual encounter occurred."

Police conducted an investigation on the reported incident and the findings were presented to a Hall County Grand Jury.

Allen will now be facing charges of aggravated sodomy, sodomy, sexual battery and practicing medicine without a license.

Allen has already bonded out of jail but he wouldn't come to the door when 11Alive stopped by his house on Burns Drive.

Now, Gainesville police worry there could be more victims.

"We would encourage anyone who may feel like they're the vicitim of a crime to contact the police department," Martin said.

The hospital won't say when Allen stopped working there - or why.

But 11Alive has learned that his nursing license is active until 2017.
