Former state college psychologist Richard Lenhart, 57, is serving a state prison sentence for sexually assaulting two patients for more than 17 years.
Former Attorney General Kathleen Kane indicted Lenhart for conducting “touching therapy” with a women. Lenhart then submitted nearly 700 insurance claims for more than $71,500. He entered a plea accepting a conviction without admitting guilt, in 2015.
Lenhart was sentenced in 2016 to three to six years at Somerset state prison, and was deemed to be a tier three sex offender and sexually violent predator, and ordered to pay $71,557 in restitution and a $1,000 fine.
