Bond revoked for psychiatrist charged with sexual assault

January 25, 2013

An arrest warrant has been issued for Dr. Charles Fischer, a psychiatrist accused of sexually abusing multiple youths while working at Austin State Hospital.

Fischer, 60, has been free on bond since June of last year, when a Travis County grand jury indicted him on multiple counts of sexually abusing minor patients in his care. But on Wednesday, Fischer was arrested for allegedly having sex with another male in a wooded area off Rollingwood Drive. He immediately posted bail and was freed.

On Friday, Judge Karen Sage revoked bonds related to his sexual abuse cases. Fischer is expected to be in custody by the end of the day.
