ELIZABETH — A Springfield physician has been sentenced to 364 days in jail following his conviction for sexually assaulting a female patient who was sedated for a medical procedure, Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow announced.
Dr. James Mauti, a specialist in internal and sports medicine, was arrested on August 17, 2007 following a investigation between the Prosecutor’s Office and Springfield Police Department that revealed Mauti assaulted a then-32-year-old former patient in November, 2006, said Union County Assistant Prosecutor Melissa Spagnoli, who prosecuted the case. The victim was also a former employee of Mauti.
Mauti was convicted on third degree aggravated criminal sexual contact and fourth degree criminal sexual contact charges in December 2012 following a lengthy trial.
In addition to the jail sentence, Mauti must register under Megan’s Law, and following his release from prison, will be placed on parole supervision for life.
