COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A 74-year-old retired central Ohio physician could face five years in prison after pleading no contest to charges that he had sexual contact with a 15-year-old boy.
The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/V89by4 ) reports that Dr. Samuel Bracken Jr. entered the plea Tuesday. He was charged after video of him having sex with the boy was discovered on the home-security system at his house in the Columbus suburb of Dublin.
The retired obstetrician is scheduled to be sentenced April 10. In addition to a prison term, he'll have to register as a sex offender every six months.
Prosecutor Daniel Hawkins said the boy was the son of Bracken's then-cleaning lady. Police said Bracken admitted that he had sex with the boy and forgot about the cameras.
