WILMINGTON, Del. -- A neurosurgeon who practiced in Newark has been sentenced to 45 days in jail for unlawful sexual contact with patients and others.

Eight- six-year-old Pierre Leroy of Fair Hill, Md., was also ordered to pay restitution to his victims and to register as a sex offender at sentencing Friday in New Castle County Superior Court.

Leroy had pleaded no contest to nine counts of third- degree unlawful sexual contact in April.

Leroy was arrested last year after a female patient reported that he had touched her inappropriately during an examination and he eventually faced more than two dozen criminal counts involving several patients. His license to practice medicine was suspended shortly after that.
