Doctor Sentenced for Sexually Assaulting Patient

DATE:  November 15, 2017

CASE:  Logan Vincent Ford (Case #15F04758)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Matt Chisholm, Adult Sexual Assault Prosecution Unit

The Honorable Geoffrey Goodman sentenced medical doctor Logan Vincent Ford to 12 years in prison and ordered him to register as a sex offender for life.  On September 21, 2017, a jury convicted Dr. Ford of forcible rape, forcible digital penetration and two counts of sexual exploitation of a patient.

In March 2015, the 53-year-old victim went to the 420MD clinic to get a prescription for medical marijuana to treat pain from various health conditions.  Dr. Ford committed his forcible sexual assaults on the victim during the examination.  The victim reported the assault later that same day and participated in an evidentiary examination at a hospital.  Unknown male DNA was recovered during the examination. Testing by the District Attorney’s Crime Laboratory determined that the DNA was a match to Dr. Ford.  Dr. Ford is also facing charges in Alameda County for allegedly committing a sexual battery against a different patient during an examination at a Berkeley 420MD clinic.
