XENIA, Ohio (WDTN) — Former Yellow Springs doctor Donald Gronbeck was indicted on 50 counts of sexual misconduct.
During a press conference on Monday, October 24, 2022, Greene County Prosecuting Attorney David Hayes described the allegations against Gronbeck.
“The indictment alleges that over the course of several years, Donald Gronbeck sexually assaulted 15 women, all of whom were his patients,” Hayes said.
Gronbeck is facing a 50-count indictment including nine counts of rape, 10 counts of sexual battery, 15 counts of gross sexual imposition and 16 counts of sexual imposition.
The indictment alleges that Gronbeck sexually assaulted 15 women, all of whom were his patients, over several years. These alleged victims were seen either at Gronbeck’s office located in Yellow Springs, or they were seen at Antioch College while Gronbeck was providing medical services at the school.
The year-long investigation began after patients and employees reported the alleged inappropriate behavior to the Greene County Sheriff’s Office. Hayes confirmed the alleged victims were seen either at Gronbeck’s private practice in Yellow Springs, which is now closed, or while he was providing medical services at Antioch College.
Greene County Sheriff Scott Anger said he was impressed by the teamwork it took to build this case. The sheriff’s office worked closely with Ohio BCI, the prosecutor’s office, and the Attorney General’s Office throughout the course of this investigation.
“I’ve been in 38 years of law enforcement. I don’t think I’ve seen a case over the course of a year that we had the multi-disciplined involved in the case to make it come to the point,” Sheriff Anger said.
“If there is anyone watching this press conference who has any additional information about criminal activity on the part of Donald Gronbeck, or if you believe that you yourself have been victimized, please contact Detective Warren Hensley of the Greene County Sheriff’s Office,” Greene County Prosecutor David D. Hayes said.
The state has filed a motion of no bond for Gronbeck. A hearing is set to be held Thursday, Oct. 27 at 1 p.m.
Detective Hensley can be reached at 937-562-4875.
