Dr. Mark Shaffer, Jr., 79, an internal medicine physician at Cleveland University Hospital, has been indicted on 24 charges including one count of kidnapping, two counts of rape, eleven counts of gross sexual imposition and ten counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor.

On Wednesday, November 28, 2012, officers and U.S. Postal inspectors searched Dr. Mark Shaffer, Jr.’s Windward Drive home in Aurora Ohio, and his Bainbridge Township medical office acting on information he received child pornography in the mail.

While searching his home authorities found several video recordings of suspected child pornography. Later the same day, Dr. Shaffer voluntarily went to the Aurora police station for a follow-up interview during which he admitted to that he has engaged in sexual activity with minors  for several years. He was arrested on a single count of gross sexual imposition on a child under the age of 13 and arraigned the following day. His bond was set at $1,000,000.

Shaffer was suspended from UH on November 29 and then fired on December 10.

A Children’s Hospital Boston physician specializing in pediatric cancer was indicted by a federal grand jury yesterday on charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.

Arrested in September, Dr. Richard J. Keller, 56, of Andover MA has consented to be held without bail pending a trial. According to the seven-page indictment, authorities say Keller was into watching videos of young boys severely mistreated. Keller has struck a voluntary agreement with the state Board of Registration in Medicine not to practice medicine.
