Ex-GP in court charged with sex attacks on girls
A former GP appeared in court today on suspicion of carrying out a series of indecent assaults on young girls who were his patients over an eight-year period.
Dr Antony Collis, 58, of Station Road, Stonegate, near Wadhurst, East Sussex, is alleged to have indecently assaulted seven girls between the ages of 10 and 14 between June 1995 and April 2003.
He made his first appearance at Lewes Magistrates' Court where it was heard he is also charged with nine counts of making indecent images of children between April 2004 and October last year.
Collis is charged with 22 offences in all, many of which are alleged to have been carried out when he was practising at the Belmont Surgery in Wadhurst.
Bespectacled Collis, who stood next to the dock dressed in a grey suit and maroon tie, was granted unconditional bail.
He was told to appear at the same court on January 13 when his case will be committed to the Crown Court.
