Psychiatrist faces new charges after patient was required to perform sexual act

January 30, 2018

Alan Emamdee, a 41-year-old psychiatrist in New Mexico, is facing criminal charges after being accused of withholding medication from a 62-year-old female patient unless she performed a sexual act in his office. Detectives for the Farmington Police Department interviewed the alleged victim about the new criminal case on Sept. 27 at her residence. The woman told detectives she had an appointment to see Emamdee in his office in February. Emamdee is accused of telling the woman to perform oral sex on him if she wanted her prescription medication, according to court documents. He was charged earlier this month on a third-degree felony count of criminal sexual penetration.
He is also facing six first-degree felony counts of criminal sexual penetration and five misdemeanor counts of criminal sexual contact following a July 20 arrest. The July charges accused Emamdee of sexually assaulting a 40-year-old female patient in his office multiple times between March and September 2016.
Twelve former patients have filed a civil lawsuit against him and against his employer, San Juan Regional Medical Center and San Juan Health Partners.
The Farmington Police Department and the San Juan County District Attorney’s Office said the investigation into Emamdee is ongoing.
