Md. doctor with 1987 rape conviction to appear in court in new molestation case

CUMBERLAND, Md. - A western Maryland physician convicted in 1987 of raping a Florida woman is making his first court appearance since he was charged with molesting a female patient earlier this year.

Fifty-nine-year-old Dr. William Dando of Rawlings is making his initial appearance in Allegany County Circuit Court in Cumberland.

The Maryland Board of Physicians last month suspended the medical license of Rawlings, whose 1987 Florida rape conviction didn't keep him from getting licensed in Maryland.

The board said a second female patient complained that Dando molested her at a walk-in clinic in LaVale this year.
