Duluth doctor said he was 'shocked' by patient's advances
Dr. Javier De La Garza testified Wednesday he was surprised when he met a woman patient on her parents' boat and the woman's father was not there as she said he would be.
And when she kissed him, De La Garza said, he was shocked.
His shock turned into a "nightmare" more than six months later when the woman went to Duluth police and accused him of sexually assaulting her on that Sept. 27, 2006, afternoon at Barker's Island.
