Rockford doctor faces additional assault charges in Des Plaines


A doctor accused of multiple instances of sexually assaulting patients during home visits in Rockford now faces additional charges of assaulting a Des Plaines woman.

Dr. Charles Dehaan of House Calls of Rockford had his medical license temporarily suspended in January after multiple allegations of inappropriate sexual misconduct with elderly patients. He was accused of engaging in sexually inappropriate conduct with multiple patients during home visits, including having sex with at least one patient. You can find details on those cases here: (the story does contain explicit language).

Now, Des Plaines police have charged Dehaan with Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault and Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse in relation to a 59-year-old Des Plaines woman.

Police say the victim had surgery in January 2009, which required her to receive at-home care to recover. Over the course of the next three and a half years, police say Charles Dehaan made monthly home visits to the victim, during which, under the pretext of doing a medical examination, Dehaan fondled the breast and genital region of the victim while exposing himself and exhibiting evidence of sexual arousal. Police say the victim had limited ability to prevent the unwanted actions due to her medical condition.

Dehaan is out on bond after his indictment on an unrelated charge of Medicare fraud.

The Des Plaines Police Department is asking anyone with any additional information on Dehaan and his practices to call them at 847-391-5400.
