A Bakersfield doctor convicted of raping two of his female patients almost two decades ago will be spending 12 years behind bars.
Doctor Kenneth Frank, 57, was convicted in 1989 for raping two Bakersfield women, but he fled to Israel before he could be sentenced.
Monday he was sentenced for two separate counts of raping of a drugged victim. For each count, Frank was sentenced to six years in state prison.
The defense attorney also requested a new trial for Dr. Frank which was denied by the judge.
