Witness describes doctor's 'Bat Room'

Dr. Calvin Day facing sexual assault charges

SAN ANTONIO - The jury in the sexual assault trial of Dr. Calvin Day, a dermatologist, was taken on a photographic tour of Day’s medical center office on Friday.

Day, 61, is accused of sexually assaulting a 46-year-old female patient in a secluded room in his office complex in September 2010.

It allegedly occurred in a room prosecutors say was called the "Bat Room.”

“There’s the night stand and the speaker and that’s a bed,” Crime Scene Investigator Treise McDaniel explained, as pictures of Day's office were shown on the courtroom’s visual display system.

“On one wall, you can also see a large mirror, as well as a mirrored head board on the bed,” she pointed out.

In addition to the woman at the center of Day’s trial, 13 others -- former patients and employees -- have accused him of inappropriate sexual behavior.

Day’s medical license has been temporarily suspended since July 2011.

If he is found guilty, he is facing a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
