HARRISON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A physician's assistant who worked in East Texas pleaded guilty on Wednesday in a Harrison County courtroom to two counts of indecent exposure.

Investigators began looking into Christopher Magill after receiving multiple complaints from women alleging inappropriate conduct.

The victims told authorities that during their exam, Magill would ask very personal questions that were unrelated to their medical complaints.

Each of the women told officials that Magill exposed himself in the exam room, after discussions with the patients on their personal lives.

One of the women stated Magill touched her breasts inappropriately during an exam for a completely unrelated illness.

Magill was sentenced to 18 months probation. He must also surrender his physician's assistant license and cannot work in that field again.

"We spent a lot of time speaking with the victims in this matter and talking to them about their wishes, and it was their main wishes that he gets help. The victims don't want to go through the trial process and have to testify to all of this. So he loses that time and effort that he put into that that way he can't be in a position," said Harrison County District Attorney Cike Solomon

He must pay a $500 dollar fine, perform community service, and go through continued therapy. As part of the plea, a third indecency charge and a charge of assault by physical contact were dropped.
