Police have charged a Hamilton-based surgeon, specializing in pediatric orthopedic care, in a sexual offence investigation.
A Hamilton Police spokesperson told Global News the offences are connected with a person under 16 and the allegations date back to between April 1994 and December 2005.
Dr. Paul Missiuna is facing four charges, sexual assault, sexual interference with a person under 16, invitation to sexual touching and sexual exploitation of a young person.
“The offence was not in the execution of his duties as a physician,” police spokesperson Krista-Lee Ernst said in an email.
“There was one victim involved.”
According to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) website, Missiuna was released and bail conditions were imposed Aug. 31, 2022.
