Charging documents provided by the department show that 60-year-old Jeffrey C. Fultz was indicted March 9 after a true bill was signed by Juneau and Sitka District Attorney Jessalyn Gillum.

Fultz was a practicing physical therapist who surrendered his license in spring of 2021 on account of “sexual misconduct.”

The charging documents state that Fultz touched the breasts of a person who did not consent during the course of medical treatment on at least one occasion in 2017. They state he committed the same violations on another person in the fall of 2016.

The state charged Fultz with two counts of second-degree sexual assault for the offenses.
