A: Marvin Todd, 72, is awaiting trial on misdemeanor charges of battery, sexual battery and sexual exploitation by a psychotherapist.

Sacramento Superior Court online records show that he is scheduled for a trial readiness conference April 30, with a trial set for May 6.

According to a story in The Sacramento Bee, Todd, a licensed social worker who previously held contracts with the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department and Child Protective Services, was arrested in June 2014, accused of sexually assaulting female patients in his private practice.

Authorities said the charges stem from encounters with two patients in early 2014. A third patient interviewed by detectives and a fourth who filed a complaint with the state in 2001 described unprofessional, but not criminal, behavior by Todd, according to documents filed in Sacramento Superior Court.
