State rests case in doctor's sex assault trial

Derm­atologist Dr. Calvin Day accused of sexually assaulting patient

SAN ANTONIO - It began as a routine visit to her dermatologist for a follow-up examination on a botox treatment she had received the accuser testified.


The 48-year-old woman said Dr. Calvin Day met her at his office on Sunday morning August 22, 2010, for the check-up.

“I walked in to the exam room and I sat on the dental chair and then he asks me to move my forehead,” she testified. “It was a typical examination."

But from there, according to her earlier testimony, things took a turn she called “scary.”

The woman said that Day took her to a secluded room in his office complex called “the Bat Room,” which included a bed, mirrors and a stereo system. She said there he touched her in an inappropriate sexual manner.

The state rested their case in Day’s trial just after noon Thursday.

The first defense witness, Monica Rivera, was Day’s office manager at the time. She said she, too, was in the office that Sunday morning.

“Did you hear any loud voices, screams or any nervousness,” asked defense attorney Jay Norton.

“No,” Rivera answered.

Testimony will resume on Friday in Judge Ron Rangel’s 379th District Court.
