Fargo surgeon strikes plea deal on charges of sedating, raping woman last June
FARGO - A Fargo surgeon accused of sedating a woman with the anesthetic Propofol and raping her in his home last June pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony reckless endangerment and a misdemeanor count of sexual assault - the latter of which was first filed as a far more serious felony.
Dr. Jon Norberg, 41, entered Alford pleas in Cass County District Court. An Alford plea doesn't admit guilt but acknowledges a jury would likely convict based on the evidence.
