Psychiatrist facing sexual assault charges seeks diary of victim

July 31, 2017

Paul Fox, the psychiatrist who was Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza's primary psychiatrist during his adolescence, is currently facing charges that he sexually abused a client.  He has filed several requests with the court to get the diary of the victim.  Fox's attorney, Steven Smart, said that Fox cannot get a fair trial without access to the diary, which Smart claims contains information about the affair.

Prosecutors have objected to the request, citing privacy rights guaranteed by the state and U.S. constitutions.

According to authorities, the victim was an 18-year-old college student being treated for depression and an eating disorder when Fox had an inappropriate sexual relationship with her.  Fox began to have near-daily appointments with the woman in 2011. The woman told police she was “drugged up and out of my mind” on a cocktail of prescription drugs Fox prescribed.
