DAYTON — Former Dayton Children’s Hospital Dr. Arun Aggarwal was sentenced Thursday to 10 months in prison and ordered to return to India upon his release after pleading guilty last week to four counts of gross sexual imposition stemming from allegations that the pediatric gastroenterologist inappropriately touched the breasts of two teenage female patients.
Montgomery County Common Pleas Court Judge Mary Wiseman issued the sentence, which was in line with Aggarwal’s plea deal. He was given credit for the four months he has spent at the Montgomery County Jail with bail set at $500,000.
“(Aggarwal’s) main concern of course is getting back with his family, as well as…sparing the victims in this case further trauma of a trial. He has expressed to me his genuine remorse, his eagerness to get on with his life and rejoin his family,” said Aggarwal’s attorney, Samuel Shamansky, on behalf of his client, who declined to speak.
When he is released from prison, Aggarwal will have to register as a Tier 1 offender, meaning he will be unable to reside within 1,000 feet of a school, preschool or daycare and must register his address every year for 15 years.
But his plea deal requires him to either leave the country voluntarily or be deported. He is currently in the U.S. on a work visa.
“He came here to help people, and that’s not what happened. He took advantage of people,” said Assistant Montgomery County Prosecutor Leon Daidone.
Aggarwal practiced at Dayton Children’s Hospital, but he was employed by Wright State University. He was hired in December 2013 and terminated by WSU in September 2015 after his hospital admitting privileges lapsed during the police investigation.
Aggarwal sued Wright State in federal court alleging he was fired without due process, and an arbitrator has ruled the university has to pay Aggarwal $91,799 because the school didn’t follow proper steps to fire him. The university may appeal the decision.

— A 3-year-old girl died today, just a few days after her babysitter was indicted on charges of felonious assault and felony child endangering.
Hannah Wesche was essentially “brain dead” at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, her father, Jason Wesche, previously told Journal-News. She was pronounced dead at 12:15 a.m., he said via a post made late this morning on GoFundMe page #Hannahstrong#JusticeforHannah.
As of 12:40 p.m. today, the page had raised $7,922 of its $15,000 goal.
Lindsay Partin, who is accused of assaulting the 3-year-old child while in her care March 8, was free on bond Thursday after being arraigned on a felony indictment Thursday afternoon.
Partin, 35, of the 4000 block of Shank Road in Hanover Twp., was indicted by a Butler County grand jury on charges of felonious assault and felony child endangering. Butler County Common Pleas Judge Greg Stephens set bond at $75,000 at her arraignment.
Partin was free on bond at 7:15 p.m. Thursday. She is scheduled to be back in court for a pre-trial hearing on April 9.
At about 7 a.m. March 8, Hanover Twp. emergency crews and Butler County detectives responded to Partin’s residence for an unconscious child. They found Hannah unresponsive with labored breathing, according to the sheriff’s office. There were obvious bruises about her head and face.
The girl was taken by medical helicopter to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. After further investigation, detectives and hospital personnel noted additional bruising on the child’s body.
Partin admitted to striking the child and stated she had fallen and struck her head on the concrete garage floor the previous day.

— Millennials are spurning traditional engagement rings and replacing them with diamonds embedded into fingers, WCBS reported.
“We notice lately a lot of people coming looking for that,” said Sam Abbas, who owns NYC Ink Studio in Manhattan.
“I think it looks nice, but if you really think what it’s doing to the body – and you can have scarring – it’s so many complications that can happen from it,” Cynthia Rivas told WCBS.
The biggest issue is keeping the area around the piercing clean. Abbas suggests cleaning the finger at least two or three times. When seeking a piercing artist, it’s also important to gauge his or her experience, Abbas said.
“You’re dealing with the blood, so you got to be very, very safe,” Abbas told WCBS. “What we do, we sterilize everything.”
The embedding process takes about 10 minutes. An artist marks a spot with a pen, cleans the area with alcohol and iodine and then inserts an anchor -- typically made of gold or titanium -- to hold the diamond, WCBS reported.
