Texas Doctor Arrested, Suspended for Sex Crimes Against Children
The Texas physician-in-training permit carried by Ricky Haywood-Watson II was suspended by a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board this Tuesday after he was arrested for multiple felonies.
Harris County Sheriff's Department arrested Haywood-Watson on Friday, January 8 after probable cause found that he had committed a string of felonies against four children.
Haywood-Watson was arrested for super aggravated sexual assault of a child, continuous sexual abuse of a child, and two counts of indecency with a child.
The victims are between four and 10 years old according to investigators with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Children unit.
The temporary suspension will remain in place until The Board takes further action. Dr. Haywood-Watson has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation and is being held on a $400,000 bond.
