According to the Shasta County District Attourney's office, Redding Physician Hamid Rabiee charged with 19 additional felonies related to inappropriate physical contact with patients will be in court today.

Today the Shasta County District Attorney’s office filed additional criminal charges against Hamid Rabiee.

Rabiee was a neurologist in Redding until his license was temporarily suspended by the Medical Board of California on February 14, 2018.

The new criminal complaint alleges 19 felony counts, including Sexual Penetration by an Object, Sexual Battery by Restraint, False Imprisonment, and Sexual Exploitation of a Patient. These charges are in addition to those already filed in Shasta County Case 18F729, alleging 9 felony counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Patient, Sexual Battery by Restraint, and False Imprisonment.

All of the charges relate to Dr. Rabiee’s inappropriate physical conduct toward patients under his care. The new criminal complaint alleges crimes against four additional, separate female patients over an approximate five year period. All of the alleged victims approached investigators independent of one another after learning about the arrest of Rabiee.

The charges stem from a continuing investigation by the Redding Police Department into multiple complaints of inappropriate and unwelcome physical contact by Dr. Rabiee. Each of the new charges involve Dr. Rabiee touching intimate parts of the victims’ bodies including their breasts, buttocks, and vaginal area both over the clothing and under the clothing. The charges also include Dr. Rabiee digitally penetrating one of his patients. All of these acts continue to be done under the guise of legitimate medical treatment.

The police investigation is ongoing. The Redding Police Department continues to receive multiple complaints from past patients.
Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact the investigations division of the Redding Police Department.

It was nice to receive some rain and mountain snow around northern California late Sunday and early Monday. Thankfully a change to our overall weather pattern is underway, and many more chances of rain are coming!
