Furthermore, they allege that University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) failed to protect Heaps’ patients and acted negligently.
More Claims of Sexual Assault Against Students by a Campus Doctor, this time UCLA
Dr. Heaps of UCLA has been criminally charged with the sexual battery of two patients, but he denies any wrongdoing. More than 130 former students and patients of Dr. Heaps have come forward accusing him of sexual misconduct.
These accusations come on the heels of a recent settlement where USC and Dr. George Tyndall were accused of similar behavior. USC is also required to to implement comprehensive changes to protect students from sexual violence, including: policy changes at the Student Health Center, the appointment of an advocate to investigate reports of sexual misconduct, and an overhaul of university-wide sexual violence policies.
