ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A suspended Athens doctor accused of sexually assaulting a sedated patient has been sentenced to probation.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports 52-year-old Mark Alan Adams was sentenced in Clarke County Superior Court late last week.

The grand jury that presented Adams' case dropped charges of sexual assault and instead indicted him on two counts of making false statements.

Adams was found guilty of lying to investigators about having sexual contact with the patient and lying about never being alone with the patient in his office after hours.

Adams' attorney Edward Tolley says his client has always denied accusations of sexual assault and has said the sex was consensual.

Adams was sentenced to five years of probation and the judge ruled that he can't obtain a medical license for three years.
