NORWICH, Conn. (WTNH) – A Norwich doctor, now residing in New York has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting patients under the Alford Doctrine today. That means Manoj Saxena admits there’s enough evidence for a conviction, but he’s not admitting guilt. He was arrested in May of 2015 for assaulting an 18-year-old girl at a Concentra Urgent Care in Norwich. He turned himself in months later on charges of assaulting two other patients. Saxena will be officially sentenced in April. He’s agreed to serve 18 months in prison, and 10 years on probation.
