According to the allegations in the indictment, unsealed today in Manhattan federal court:[1]

Over the course of several years, PADUCH became known as a well-known medical institution in New York (“Medical Institution-1”).

From at least 2015 or approximately 2019 to at least 2019 or approximately 2019, PADUCH, while working as a urologist, lured and lured multiple victims to his medical office at Medical Institution-1 so PADUCH could conduct victims of sexual abuse. Around 2019, PADUCH began practicing at another hospital (“Medical Institution-2”) located in Long Island, New York, where he continued to sexually abuse patients. PADUCH used his position as a urologist at a prominent New York medical institution to convince or attempt to convince victims that the sexual abuse he inflicted on them was medically necessary and appropriate when it was not. PADUCH often instructs victims to schedule follow-up visits, and he instructs victims to come back and see him again. As a result, some of the victims attended many of PADUCH’s appointments over a period of years where PADUCH repeatedly abused them.

After the appointment, Parducci used his personal cell phone to text some of the victims, including underage victims. In the messages, he made inappropriate sexual comments and jokes, and instructed victims to schedule follow-up appointments or visit his office after regular business hours.

PADUCH allegedly lured two of his victims from or via another state to New York, NY to engage in illicit sexual activity — in other words, he abused his victims. PADUCH also used telephone calls and other means of interstate commerce to induce two underage victims to engage in illegal sexual activity.
