Anti-Gay ‘Dr. Shock’ Busted on Sex Charges

A South African psychiatrist known as Dr. Shock for his notorious attempts to “cure” gay military recruits through electroshock therapy has been charged with sexually assaulting a male patient. Dr. Aubrey Levin, who was arrested in Calgary, Alberta, after he was secretly filmed sexually abusing a male patient, had previously been accused of gross human rights abuses for his treatment of gay soldiers and conscientious objectors in Apartheid-era South Africa.

As a top military psychiatrist for the South African apartheid regime, Levin is believed to have not only given gay patients electroshock therapy but also chemically castrated one gay soldier and driven one patient to suicide. After emigrating to Canada in 1995 he kept his past abuses out of the media by threatening lawsuits, the Guardian reports. Since Levin’s recent arrest Canadian police have begun investigating similar allegations by at least 30 other previous patients of his in Canada.
