October Trial Set For Man Accused of Abuse at Kansas VA

LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) – A trial is scheduled for this fall for a former physician’s assistant accused of sexually abusing patients at the Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Leavenworth, Kansas.
The Leavenworth Times reports that an Oct. 31 trial was set Friday in Leavenworth County District Court.

Mark Wisner is charged with a felony count of aggravated criminal sodomy and three misdemeanor charges of sexual battery related to his alleged misconduct in 2014 at the Eisenhower VA Medical Center.

Wisner surrendered his medical license last year after at least seven patients accused him of abusing them. He faces several federal lawsuits accusing him of abuse.

Wisner is seeking to have the civil proceedings halted until the criminal case is resolved.
