Frankfort Pediatrician Accused of Groping Women Arrested; Four New Victims Come Forward
Dr. Kishor Jain, of Frankfort, turned himself in to police on Friday after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
A Frankfort pediatrician accused of sexually abusing five women in his office was arrested on a warrant Friday by Frankfort police, according to a press release from the Frankfort Police Department.
Dr. Kishor Jain is charged with 10 felony counts of criminal sexual abuse and five misdemeanor counts of battery related to a 2011 complaint and subsequent lawsuit, as well as recent reports from additional victims.
Police obtained an arrest warrant for Jain from the State’s Attorneys Office on Feb. 15. Jain turned himself in and was released after posting the $10,000 bond.
Jain was charged with two counts of felony criminal sexual abuse and one count of battery for each of five women he allegedly attacked in his office at the Hedges Clinic at 222 Colorado Ave.
The victims range in age from 22 to about 30, said special prosecutor Dave Neal. The victims include Jessica Schubbe, 29, of Manteno, who sued Jain in January for allegedly groping her. Schubbe, who in the criminal complaint is identified as Jessica Greenwood, reported Jain to the Frankfort police in 2011.
After her lawsuit was publicized, the four other women came forward and contacted the police. None of the women know each other, Neal said.
Previously, Jain had been accused of molesting six women in his office on separate occasions over the course of several years. He has never been found guilty of any charges related to the accusations.
Jain will appear in court for a bond hearing on March 19.
