Dr. Kevin Pezeshki, 43, was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Gregory Dohi after he earlier pleaded no contest to one count of felony sexual battery by fraud. Similar charges involving a second patient were dismissed as a result of his plea.
Deputy District Attorney Rena Durrrant said Pezeshki admitted inappropriately touching a female patient during an exam in 2008 at Northridge Hospital Medical Center. The victim said that when she turned around she said she saw the doctor pulling up the zipper of his pants.
Pezeshki has a hearing later this year on the status of his suspended medical license before the state Medical Board.
