Solicitor Jade Brown is currently acting for a victim of Dr Manish Shah who was convicted in 2018 of sexually assaulting 18 female patients between 2009 and 2013.
He was convicted of more than 20 further sexual offences against a further 6 patients in December 2019 relating to the same period. On 7 February 2020, Dr Shah was sentenced to 3 life terms imprisonment. Some of Dr Shah’s victims were minors, the youngest being 11.
At Dr Shah's trails he wad in total convicted on 90 counts of assault. He preyed on those most vulnerable and used his position of trust to commit serious sexual offences.
Dr Shah first appeared in court in August 2017, charged with 118 sexual offences. The charges related to 54 victims. Dr Shah pleaded not guilty. The charges included assault by penetration, sexual assault and also sexual assault of a girl under 13 (the victim was 11).
The first trail began in September 2018. Dr Shah was found guilty of sexual offences in relation to 18 patients. The second trail began in October 2019. This trial related to 8 further patients. Dr Shah again pled not guilty but was found guilty. At the conclusion of this trial he was found guilt of 9 counts of sexual assault and 16 counts of sexual assault by penetration.
At sentencing Judge Molyneux commented:
““You were a master of deception and you abused your position of power. This was a horrible abuse of trust and caused incalculable harm. The details show a pattern of behaviour over five years. Your behaviour was not only sexual but was driven by your desire to control and on occasions humiliate women.”.
Dr Shah was suspended by the General Medical Council in 2013.
Dr Shah's offences have had a profound effect on his victims. His victims have described him as a sexual predator resulting in their lives being turned upside down.
Jade Brown is seeking an apology and an explanation for her client as to how and why this happened. She is also seeking compensation for the sexual assaults.
