Appeals court upholds ex-doctor's sex conviction

Appeals court upholds ex-doctor's sex conviction

ATLANTA -- A federal appeals court has upheld the conviction and prison sentence of a former emergency room physician who was sentenced to more than 26 years in prison on child pornography and sexual misconduct charges.

Dr. Adam Lebowitz's attorney argued that much of the evidence prosecutors used against him was tainted because his client was unaware that the victim was 15 years old.

But on Thursday the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the argument. The three-judge panel ruled that Lebowitz failed to demonstrate the sentence was "substantively unreasonable."

Lebowitz was arrested in 2006 after a woman reported that the doctor had sent messages with sexual content to her 15-year-old son, and authorities said he tried to take the boy to his home in Decatur.
