Dr. Kevin Brown reacts to LA jury verdict

*Dr. Kevin Brown, a South Los Angeles physician and son of a former premier of Bermuda, was found guilty  on 21 charges related to sexual assaults on nine female patients, including a 15-year-old and an undercover police officer.

Brown was found guilty on counts that included sexual battery by fraud, sexual exploitation by a physician and lewd act upon a child. The jury deadlocked on eight other charges.

As Los Angeles County Superior Judge Michael E. Pastor read the verdicts, Brown shook his head incredulously and looked back several times at family members seated in the second row, including his father, former Bermuda Premier Ewart Brown.

Brown, who had been free on $4-million bond, was immediately handcuffed and taken to county jail.

Defense attorneys said they plan to file a motion for a new trial on most, if not all, of the guilty verdicts. The physician waived his right to a speedy sentencing.
