Trial ends for LA doctor-son of ex-Bermuda leader

Trial is wrapping up in Los Angeles for the physician-son of Bermuda's former leader on allegations he sexually assaulted 12 female patients, including an undercover vice officer, using the guise of unnecessary breast and pelvic checkups.

Closing arguments begin Wednesday in the case against 40-year-old Kevin Antario Brown.

He has pleaded not guilty to 33 felony counts, ranging from sexual exploitation to forcible rape.

Brown is the son of Ewart Brown, who stepped down as Bermuda's premier late last year.

He has been free on $4 million bail. He could face up to life in prison if convicted on all charges.

Prosecutors have said an undercover vice officer visited Brown's office in 2008 and he fondled her breast while being secretly recorded.

His defense attorney has questioned the investigation.
