A Sandy Springs doctor has been arrested for allegedly practicing without his license.
Kelly Burton Thrasher was charged in November 2012 with sexual assault for allegedly drugging then having sex with a woman while she was unconscious.
In another case, in January 2013, Thrasher was alleged to have molested a juvenile girl during a sleepover at his home.
State officials subsequently suspended his license to practice medicine, Sandy Springs Police spokesman Capt. Steve Rose said.
Late last year, police received information alleging that Thrasher had returned to his office and was again having contact with his patients, in violation of the conditions of his suspension by the Georgia State Licensing Board, Rose said.
Police detectives notified the board and the Fulton County District Attorney’s office, and were able to obtain a warrant for his arrest.
Thrasher was arrested at his home Saturday and taken to the Fulton County Jail, and released the next day on $50,000 bond, according to jail records.
