HARLAN, Iowa (AP) - A former western Iowa doctor charged with molesting a 10-year-old girl in 1999 has entered a plea deal.

KETV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1DFv0Mu ) that 82-year-old Wing Tai Fung, now of Ontario, Canada, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault with intent to commit sexual abuse and misdemeanor indecent contact with a child. A felony count of second-degree sexual abuse was dismissed.

An attorney for Fung could not be reached Monday to request comment on his behalf.

A criminal complaint accuses Fung of molesting a girl in January 1999 while treating her for a knee sprain at Myrtue Medical Center in Harlan, Iowa. He was arrested in April 2014 in Chicago.

Fung was sentenced in March to a two-year suspended prison sentence and two years of probation on each count. He also was fined $1,250.
