Former Iowa Doctor In Sex Case Sentenced

DAVENPORT (AP) -- A former Muscatine doctor who was accused of prescribing drugs to his patients in exchange for sex has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

David Gierlus, of Illinois City, Ill., received the sentence during a hearing Thursday. U.S. District Judge Stephanie Rose also gave the 60-year-old a hefty fine of $400,000. His wife sobbed as he was immediately taken into custody.

Court records show Gierlus was accused of having sexual contact with 18 victims, including three patients who were drugged before being assaulted.

Gierlus pleaded guilty in March to one count of unlawfully distributing a controlled substance. Nearly 100 counts were dismissed as part of a plea deal.
