‘Pool doctor’ molested countless children for decades, investigation confirms
New York Post
The report, released Thursday, confirmed the doctor’s decades-long reign of predatory abuse.
“It is clear that Archibald, taking advantage of his position as a trusted and respected physician and researcher, engaged in a widespread pattern of misconduct and sexually abused many children at the Hospital over the course of many years when offering patients medical care and treatment,” the report found.
In addition to photographing countless children naked, Archibald masturbated patients under the pretext of drawing semen samples for research purposes, according to the report. He routinely fondled children he examined and would even brush his face against their genitals.
“Much of Archibald’s behavior must be seen as motivated by improper sexual interests,” the report said.
Attorney Jennifer Freeman, who is representing 150 of his accusers, has called Archibald — who gathered patients from his position as “pool doctor” at the Madison Square Boys Club — “the most prolific pedophile in U.S. history.”Find more information online here.
