BRIDGEWATER, Pa. —
Dr. Robert Knapp's attorney insists Knapp is innocent and said they will fight the sex charges vigorously in court.
"Once the facts come out, we are confident he will be more than exonerated," Bernie Rabik said during his client's arraignment last year.
Since early October, a total of six women have accused the endocrinologist of molesting them during routine appointments in Knapp's Sharon Road office.
Police said the women, who range in age from 20 to 50, said Knapp groped, fondled and kissed them at some point during their exams.
Police said at least 30 women have now come forward, but because of the statute of limitations, not all cases will be prosecuted.
While awaiting his trial, Knapp continues to practice as a physician.
