Girl, 5 Sexually Abused By Iowa Pediatrician

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A Council Bluffs doctor is in jail on a charge of second-degree sexual abuse after a child alleged he touched her inappropriately on numerous occasions.

Dennis Seaborn Jones turned himself in to authorities after a complaint and an arrest warrant were issued for him.

The 68-year-old pediatrician is alleged to have had inappropriate sexual contact with a 5-year-old girl outside of his medical practice. The child disclosed the contact to a parent saying she no longer wanted to see Jones because he “tortures” her. Court documents say further interviews indicated the child was the subject of inappropriate touching.

Jones’ attorney Mike Winter says Jones is not guilty, is devastated by the claims, and expects to be found not guilty.

An initial court appearance was set for Monday afternoon.
