Dentist charged with raping a teenage girl
The dentist charged with sexually assaulting a teenage boy at his Florida home was indicted on Tuesday in connection with the case.
Mark Anthony Suggs, a licensed dentist in West Palm Beach, Fla., is accused of forcing himself on a 13-year-old girl in November 2011 at a pet clinic and then sexually assaulting her when she resisted.
He was indicted in June on one count of second-degree sexual abuse and one count each of second and third-degree felony sexual abuse, according to the Palm Beach County District Attorney’s Office.
The indictment was unsealed on Monday.
The boy, identified only as J.M., said he had met Sugg and another man at the Pet Clinic.
He said the two men were trying to convince him to come with them to their home.
After a short time, he said, he was taken back to Sugg’s house and assaulted by Sugg, according the affidavit.
The two men fled the scene, and J.C. reported the assault to the police.
According to the indictment, the boy told the police that he and Sugg “started having sex” after the woman refused to have sex with them.
The affidavit states that the man “then forced J.B. into a bedroom and forced him to perform oral sex on him, which he did.”
The affidavit alleges that when the boy asked to be let go of the bed, Sugg put his hand on his throat and forced his face against the boy’s neck, causing a bruise.
The boy told investigators that Sugg had given him a ride home and that he later woke up naked on the bathroom floor and found his underwear pulled down.
The affidavit states Sugg then forced J., who was 17 at the time, to perform sex acts on him and that J.P. was raped by Suck.
J.P.’s father, Mike, told The Associated Press that he was unaware of the charges against the dentist.
He did not know about the alleged abuse, but he said his son was shocked by the news.
“It was not something that would be tolerated in this day and age,” he said.
“It was shocking.
I just don’t think I would have thought this was going on.”
The Associated Press reported that the girl is from a religious family in the Tampa area.
