Psychiatrists are sexually convicted for the third time

“It was unethical, but not illegal,” it said during the case of psychiatrist Kim Eisenreich about his sexual relationship with a former patient. But Glostrup’s court found it illegal because he had used the woman’s insanity to get sex. “It was unethical, but not illegal,” it said during the case of psychiatrist Kim Eisenreich about his sexual relationship with a former patient.

For years, now 52-year-old psychiatrist Kim Eisenreich used a former patient’s mental illness to get sex with her.
It ruled the court in Glostrup on Friday, and sentenced him to imprisonment for 15 months.
This is the third time that the psychiatrist has received them to go too far in his sexual eagerness.
In 2011, he received a one-year prison in Norway for sexually abused a female patient under his former name, Kim Jørgen Holtz.
And in April last year he received a new sentence in three months in Aarhus for abuse of his position for 10 months to have had sex with a patient.
The punishment from Aarhus, confirmed by the Vestre Landsret, came on Friday in the current verdict, because the perpetrators in the two cases overlapped each other.
Therefore, the court in Glostrup judged a total sentence of 15 months in prison. The judge arrested the psychiatrist on the spot to dismiss.
The court in Glostrup found it proved that Kim Eisenreich during the period 2011-2016 took advantage of a now 55-year-old woman’s mental illness for sex.
To exploit a person’s mental illness to a sexual relationship is very serious
Senior Prosecutor Peter Rask
According to the accusation, the man in many cases had acquired sexual intercourse and other sexual relations with the woman in different places in Zealand – among other things in a psychiatric home in Taastrup.
“To exploit a person’s mental illness to a sexual relationship is very serious and fortunately also very unusual. I am very pleased that the court has chosen to follow the prosecutor in this case, “it said after the judgment of senior prosecutor Peter Rask from the Copenhagen West Bank Police.
The mentally ill woman had been patient for several years until 2003, but he was not convicted of abuse of her position as a psychiatrist.
On the other hand, the essence of the battle was, if the woman proved insane in the period 2011-2016, and whether the psychiatrist took advantage of her sex with her.
The court was not in doubt. The Doctors Council has established that the woman was diagnosed with schizoaffective psychosis and schizophrenia during the period. Both are counting as mental illnesses.
The psychiatrist explained in court that it was a love relationship, but the woman had a different view.
She explained that she felt like a robot that mechanically followed the wishes of the psychiatrist. And the court has largely chosen to explain her reason for the verdict.
In the present case, it does not matter to the man that he was a psychiatrist. He was not the woman’s treatment at the time of the act. But the law prohibits everyone from exploiting the frailty of retarded and insane to achieve sex.
“The insanity and the mentally retarded, they need society’s protection,” it said, among other things, from prosecutor Peter Rask at Friday’s hearing.
The National Board of Health has today deprived him of his authorization as a doctor.
Already in the summer of 2008, the woman whose mental illness the psychiatrist is now convicted of exploiting has notified him to the Vestegnens Police for Sexual Abuse.
However, after investigating the case, the case was suspended in January 2009. The police did not mean that the psychiatrist could be punished for some time.
