Dr. William Stimmler gets 16 months for child molestation
Dr. William Stimmler, 60, was handcuffed and led from the courtroom to begin serving his sentence handed down by Norwalk Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza. Prosecutors initially charged Stimmler with a total of three counts, however two counts of committing a lewd acts upon a child were dismissed under a plea deal, the prosecutor explained. The sentence given for the single conviction was the most lenient sentence allowed under the law. Matta said she and the victim, who is now in her mid-30s, were satisfied with the outcome of the case, "mostly to avoid any further trauma to the victim." Though he received a shorter prison sentence than he might otherwise have received without a plea bargain, the arrangement spares the victim the emotional difficulty of Stimmler did not address the court before receiving his sentence. Both he and the attorney who represented him Wednesday, Case Barnett, declined to comment Wednesday. Under state law, Stimmler will be required to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence, supply a DNA sample and undergo HIV testing, officials said. Upon his release, he will also be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Stimmler was named president of Bright Health Physicians of PIH in February of 2011. The organization of 11 hospitals and clinics has since been renamed PIH Health. He served in the position for just under two years before resigning in January, one month after he was arrested in connection with the case and one month before he was formally charged. Stimmler's medical license, which he first obtained in July of 1983 after graduating from the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, was suspended via a court order on May 24, more than three months after charges were first filed against him in Feb. 14, according to court and Medical Board of California documents. Stimmler was first arrested shortly after the victim came forward to report the abuse late last year. Stimmler posted bail the same day he was arrested and has remained free on bail pending the conclusion of the case.
