Dr. Scott Dodd Anderson was sentenced today to a year in county jail and five years' probation for his convictions on six counts of sexually abusing his patients at a workers' compensation clinic on Folsom Boulevard.
Anderson, 64, who was fired from U.S. HealthWorks four years ago as a result of the investigation into the charges, also will be required to register as a sex offender when he gets out of jail.
Sacramento Superior Court Judge Eugene L. Balonon imposed the term on Anderson after the convictions that were returned May 23 in Anderson's retrial. Jurors in the second trial found him guilty on three felony counts of engaging in sexual contact with two patients and three counts of misdemeanor sexual battery on the same two women.
The jury failed to reach verdicts on seven other counts.
Anderson had initially been charged with rape as well as additional counts of forced oral sex, sodomy and penetration by force, in an original 41-count complaint that involved five alleged victims.
Deputy District Attorney Laura Greene asked Balonon to impose a two-year state prison term. Defense attorney Linda Parisi requested that Anderson be put into an electronic monitoring program.
The judge remanded Anderson into custody after sentencing.
