A 32-year-old Toronto doctor is facing several sex-related charges in connection with a human trafficking investigation.
Police say the man answered an ad on Backpage.com for an escort in December 2016.
It’s alleged he met with a 15-year-old girl at several different hotels in Toronto and had unprotected sex with her. After each encounter, he gave her birth control prescriptions and would inject her with the medication.
It’s also alleged that the man had unprotected sex with the teen in his office at Toronto General Hospital. Again, he prescribed and administered birth control medication.
Ernest Chiu has been arrested and charged with Sexual Interference, Invitation to Sexual Touching, Obtaining Sexual Services from a person under 18 and Sexual Assault.
Police say he was a doctor of Nephrology and aside from Toronto General Hospital he has also worked at St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital and Toronto Rehab and Sinai Health System.
According to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, Chiu is no longer certified to practice in the province as of a few months ago.
