Lakeport Doctor Must Register as a Sex Offender

A Lakeport doctor has been ordered to register as a sex offender. During a recent hearing, 57-year-old Mohamad Moutaz Almawaldi, a Nephrologist, entered a no-contest plea to the misdemeanor charge of sexual battery. Almawaldi was arrested last February after a warrant was issued following a report that he had allegedly sexually assaulting a co-worker. Almawaldi was also sentenced to three years of probation, and ordered to pay a fine.
