A Pennsylvania dentist has been charged with sexual extortion after allegedly exposing himself and groping a woman at his practice, ABC affliate WNEP reported Aug. 2.

Scott Parkinson, DMD, is the owner of Tremont (Pa.) Dentistry. He was charged with indecent assault, indecent exposure and sexual extortion on Aug. 2, according to court documents.

Dr. Parkinson allegedly inappropriately touched a woman in his office multiple times and exposed himself, according to WNEP.
