LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas doctor already charged with possessing child pornography is now being accused of drugging victims to sexually assault them.

On Tuesday, prosecutors identified at least 11 victims and added 17 more charges in the case against Binh “Ben” Chung.

He was initially charged in June with using a minor to produce child porn and 10 counts of possession of child porn.

Prosecutors say Chung used a drug to put the victims under anesthesia to rape them. He’s also charged with lewdness for groping a victim’s breasts.

His medical license for his family practice has been suspended indefinitely.

According to the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners, Chung got his medical degree in 2001 and completed his residency in Las Vegas in 2004.

Chung has declined interviews through police.
