Robert Hadden’s charges were announced Wednesday after multiple patients came forward with their sexual assault stories, including the wife of Andrew Yang, Evelyn Yang. The manhattan gynecologist worked at Columbia University and the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

Hadden has avoided charges since 2016 and gave up his medical license in a plea deal with earlier prosecutors. However, he now will face federal charges with six counts of inducing others to engage in illegal sex acts.
