It is unclear how other investigations into Kohut’s past did not result in charges. Eli Newberger, a pediatrician at Boston Children’s Hospital, founder of the hospital’s child protection team and an expert witness in numerous child-sex cases involving defendants who worked in positions of authority. Sometimes, it’s ultimately the images that catch up with the offenders.
“Very frequently, people of higher social status are able to escape prosecution,” Newberger said. “I could not but wonder to the extent of these allegations and whether this is a sex ring,” Newberger said.
NO CRIMINAL RECORD Kohut has properties in multiple states and has suspended medical licenses in Alabama and Arkansas.
His credentials in those states were put on hold in light of the allegations in Santa Cruz County.
He also lured women and children from Ohio, Florida, Louisiana, Nevada and Australia, according to court documents. All charges are linked to sodomy, lewd acts with children and other forced offenses. The Watsonville Police Department’s investigation had information about the possibility of up to seven victims.
MATTERS OF PREFERENCE Kohut preferred children ages 6 to 8, Moore wrote. It is unclear whether the new information released Friday will unveil additional child victims.
Kohut’s medical license has been suspended in Arkansas and he never started his job there.
The prosecution alleges that Kohut’s wife already had moved to Arkansas.
“He admitted that he had sex in front of those children and fondled the 13 year old. He would ask (the Florida woman) to recruit friends for him and he wanted her to call him ‘daddy.'” BAIL HEARING SET Now, a bail hearing to consider Kohut’s bail request, filed by attorney Jay Rorty, is slated a.m. Rorty’s request for “reasonable bail” for Kohut was filed Thursday.
“He then wants to impregnate the daughter and raise the child sexually in the ‘taboo’ family lifestyle.” Moore’s opposition to bail request was filed Friday.
Pima County, Arizona nurse Emily Stephens and Watsonville nurse Rashel Brandon also were charged in the sex ring.
“However, he maintained ties to Santa Cruz following his move, taking surgical call shifts at Dominican Hospital from January to March of 2017,” Rorty wrote.
“He returned again in May and was arrested at his family home.” Rorty also wrote that the Kohuts continue to own investment property in Santa Cruz.
