On October 20, 2022, Dr. James Heaps, an obstetrician-gynecologist and oncologist at UCLA, was found guilty of five counts related to sexual assault and misconduct against some of his patients. Since his arrest in 2019, hundreds of alleged victims have come forward, claiming they were sexually assaulted during one or more of their wellness examinations with Dr. Heaps. However, Dr. Heaps continues to maintain his innocence. Today, four of his victims – Melanie, Ellen, Nicole, and Gaby – speak out and share their stories of the horrific abuse they claim they endured. Their attorneys, Darren Kavinoky and Jennifer McGrath, say things need to change now to hold predators and the large institutions who employ them accountable.
