Gillette Psychologist Charged With Second Sexual Assault
GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — A 32-year-old former therapist in Gillette faces more charges of using his job to get patients to have sex with him.
Joshua Ray Popkin waived his preliminary hearing in Circuit Court and was bound over to District Court last week to face two felony charges of second-degree sexual assault.
A trial on an initial charge of second-degree sexual assault had been scheduled to start Monday, but it was postponed until September.
Popkin worked as a psychologist with Campbell County Health from Nov. 2, 2015, to May 25, 2016.
Popkin was arrested on the latest charge April 14 and was freed on a $50,000 cash or surety bond April 17. No date for an arraignment has been set yet.
