As Dr. Kabbara was groping the woman, his watch came off in the woman’s pants, prompting him to meet with her again in order to get his watch back. Dr. Kabbara convinced the woman to meet at his house to obtain his watch. As the woman sat with Dr. Kabbara, he began to touch her inappropriately again, even after she repeated she did not want to have sex.
