Two men indicted for playing doctor

NEW CITY – Two men, one a cop, have been indicted by a Rockland County grand jury on 34 counts for allegedly performing medical examinations on the same victim without a license and with several counts of sexual abuse.

The exams occurred in late 2005 and early 2006.

Both Zalman Silber of Monsey and Andrew Dale of Suffern were charged with acting individually and together. Dale is a Ramapo Town police officer.

The indictment includes four counts of unauthorized practice in violation of state Education Law, four counts of aggravated sexual abuse in the fourth degree, and 24 counts of sexual abuse in the third degree.

Dale is also charged with two counts of official misconduct for conduct related to his role as a police officer in the Town of Ramapo, said District Attorney Thomas Zugibe.

Both men were arraigned and released on their own recognizance.
