Teen girls say doctor abused them at Ohio home

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Two teenage girls have testified in court about alleged sexual abuse at the hands of a former Dayton emergency room physician during sleepovers at the family's home.

The girls, who were younger than 13 when the alleged abuse occurred, told a jury Tuesday about the incidents in the trial of Dr. Keith Goldblum, a former doctor at Good Samaritan Hospital in the city.

The Dayton Daily News ( ) reports the 59-year-old Goldblum is standing trial for 14-sex related charges against four girls during a nearly nine-year period beginning in 2002.

None of the girls are his children or former patients.

Goldblum's attorneys said the case is built on a "house of cards" and a "terrible" police investigation. During cross-examination, they highlighted inconsistencies in the girls' testimony.
