A Sacramento Superior Court jury today convicted Dr. Scott Dodd Anderson on six counts of sexually abusing two of his patients four years ago at a workers' comp clinic on Folsom Boulevard.
Judge Eugene L. Balonon took the partial verdict today because one of the jurors had a vacation scheduled to begin on Friday. He named one of the alternates on the panel to replace the juror who is leaving. The panel will begin deliberations on the seven remaining counts on Tuesday.
The judge will not schedule a sentencing date until the jury resolves all of the counts.
The convictions came on three felony counts of engaging in sexual contact with his patients and three misdemeanor counts of sexual battery.
Anderson was not remanded into custody.
Today's verdict came on the sixth day of deliberations in Anderson's retrial. His first trial finished in November with a jury acquitting him on two counts and failing to reach a verdict on 15 more.
Anderson had initially been charged with three counts of rape as well as additional counts of forced oral sex, sodomy and penetration by force. Those charges were dropped before his first trial.
All of the allegations were lodged by patients who suffered workplace injuries that he treated at U.S. HealthWorks on Folsom Boulevard.
