Doctor arrested, charged with sexual battery

HIDDEN VALLEY LAKE – A local physician has been arrested and charged with the sexual battery of one of his patients.

The arrest of Corey Marcell Warner, 41, of Hidden Valley Lake on Thursday followed nearly a year of investigation into a report made by a female patient, according to Capt. James Bauman of the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

Bauman said in July of 2009 a Middletown woman had reportedly gone to Warner’s practice at Hidden Valley Medical Services in Hidden Valley for an examination.

The woman later alleged that Warner conducted himself inappropriately during her visit, Bauman said.

Bauman said deputies arrested Warner at his Hidden Valley Lake home without incident at about 5 p.m. Thursday on a felony warrant signed by Superior Court Judge Stephen Hedstrom.

Warner was booked at the Lake County Jail on a charge of sexual battery involving a restrained person, according to his booking sheet. He was released late Thursday evening after posting $10,000 bail.

Bauman said no further case details currently are available for release, and the case is pending further investigation.

Anyone with information on this or any other criminal matter is encouraged to contact the Lake County Sheriff’s Department at 707-262-4200.
