Tuesday morning was Dr. George Doodnaught's last day as a free man.

The anesthesiologist from North York General hospital was sentenced Tuesday to ten years in prison after being found guilty of sexually assaulting 21 women over four years, ending in 2010.

All of the assaults except one occurred at North York General, starting in 2006.

A judge found Doodnaught guilty on all 21 counts in November.

His victims reported being fondled and kissed while under conscious sedation and reported that Doodnaught performed other sexual acts on them during surgery.

The defence had asked for Doodnaught to received an 8-10 year sentence while the Crown requested 15 years.

Doodnaught had over 25 years experience at North York General Hospital.
