SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A judge has accepted a plea deal in the case of a Kaiser Permanente plastic surgeon accused of sex crimes.Scott Takasugi, who practiced at Kaiser's Morse Avenue facility, was arrested in 2006 on sex and weapons charges. On Friday, Takasugi pleaded no contest to two of the counts against him. As part of the deal, Takasugi will get no more than three years and eight months in prison when he is sentenced on Oct. 9. Officials found a rocket-propelled grenade and at least five machine guns at his Empire Court residence, said R.L. Davis, spokesman for the sheriff's department. More than a dozen homes were evacutated after investigators stumbled upon the weapons, authorities said. While Kaiser admitted it has received dozens of complaints against Takasugi, some are questioning how long hospital officials have known about potential problems. He had 19 potential victims, KCRA 3 reported in 2006.
A search warrant shows Kaiser's own investigators knew of a serious complaint against Takasugi as early as 2003 but did not take that complaint to the state medical board. Copyright 2009 by KCRA.com.
