The doctor accused of punching a 12-year-old at Mountain Creek in 2016 has been found guilty on three counts of a five-count indictment. According to the New Jersey Herald, Samuel Caruthers didn't react to the news when it was read in court on Wednesday, April 3 and his attorney intends to file a motion to overturn the verdict.
The 47-year-old was reportedly found guilty of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child, simple assault, a disorderly persons offense, and fourth-degree unlawful possession of a weapon. He was found not guilty of third-degree aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and third-degree possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose.
On February 14, 2016 Caruthers allegedly "stabbed" Jacob Azemoun, now 15, with a ski pole and punched him in the mouth six times after Azemoun allegedly ran into Caruthers' then 10-year-old son.
He's facing up to 7 years in prison and sentencing is set for May 24.
