    Your article regarding sexual abuse by Dr Carlos Marcano contains a significant innacuracy. The victim was not, “…one of the adolescents in his care”, as you state. The Grand Rapids Press article at: states “…admitted sexually molesting a relative more than 50 times, according to court documents.” Later it states, “The abuse did not involve a patient and did not occur on Pine Rest property”.
