CALGARY - The Crown will seek up to a seven-year prison term for former court psychiatrist Dr. Aubrey Levin, who was convicted Monday night of sexually assaulting three patients.

A four-woman, seven-man Calgary jury deliberated over four separate days before concluding Levin molested three male patients.

Among the victims was the catalyst to the police investigation into the 74-year-old doctor, an individual who took spy watch video of two of his sessions with Levin.

Lead Crown prosecutor Bill Wister said following the ruling that society owed a debt of gratitude to the man for helping to bring Levin to justice.

“He was the individual that started this whole process,” Wister noted.

The victim, who can’t be identified, said he took the spy watch footage of Levin fondling his privates, because he knew as a convicted criminal and mental patient his word would not have been believed over the doctor’s.
