TORONTO — Convicted sex predator Dr. George Doodnaught will learn Wednesday whether he will be freed on $1-million bail while he fights his convictions for sexually assaulting 21 surgical patients.

Justice Harry LaForme reserved his ruling on Doodnaught's bail application after hearing arguments Feb. 27.

Sentenced last week to 10 years in prison, the 65-year-old anesthesiologist has appealed his convictions. Lawyer Brian Greenspan urged the judge to free Doodnaught on bail during the lengthy process since he isn't a flight risk and doesn't pose a danger to the public because he has been suspended from practising by the College of Physicians and Surgeons.
