Doctor sex trial set for November

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dougherty County judge rules an Albany Doctor's trial for sexual assaulting two of his patients will be held in November.

Dr. Jimmy Shaddock, 71, is charged with two counts of sexual assault against a patient, dating back as long ago as 2009.

Doctor Shaddock's trial was to start in two weeks but he reported he had fired his attorney this week.

Judge Willie Lockette ordered the trial to be held in November.

"The court has indicated that we will be bringing the case to trial as scheduled, regardless of the situation regarding whomever the defendant intends to hire as his attorney,"

Said Dougherty District Attorney Greg Edwards.

Prosecutors say Dr. Shaddock, a psychotherapist, sexually assaulted two female patients during treatment and counseling.
