ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Two women whose children were seen by an Albuquerque pediatric urologist facing a federal child pornography charge filed a class-action lawsuit Saturday alleging that the patients were “treated by a depraved sexual predator” who used his position “to engage in pedophilia and voyeurism.”
Dr. Guy Rosenschein was arrested in November and remains in federal custody pending trial on charges of possession and distribution of child porn, according to court records. He and his former employer, Presbyterian Healthcare Services, are named as defendants in the lawsuit filed in state District Court.
Federal court documents indicate that agents found images in Rosenschein’s home of naked children and Bernalillo County detectives reported finding a flash drive on his keychain containing pornographic images of children.
The lawsuit alleges that a cellphone seized from Rosenschein’s home contained around a dozen images “taken in a hospital or medical setting.” But U.S. Attorney Damon Martinez, whose office is prosecuting Rosenschein’s federal case, wrote in a letter to PHS officials early this month that there was no evidence to suggest the photos were taken at Presbyterian or even that taking the photos was not clinically appropriate.
