Dentist is cleared of sexual assaults
A dentist and former Liberal Democrat candidate for Parliament has been cleared of sexually assaulting four of his patients.
Adrian Heath, who failed to get elected as a Lib Dem MP in 2005, was accused of “weighing” the breasts of one of his victims before he “tweaked” her nipple.
The 44-year-old, of Rosebury Avenue, Lincoln, was cleared by a jury at Nottingham Crown Court of five counts of sexual assault.
It was alleged he assaulted four different women between November 2007 and August 2008.
During the eight-day trial, he described the allegation he groped one his patients at the Genesis Dental Care practice in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, as “bizarre” and “ridiculous”.
