A jury has ruled that former Mankato eye doctor Todd Gavin is not guilty of charges that he took advantage of two female patients by convincing them they needed breast exams, the Mankato Free Press reports.

Gavin had been charged with two felony and two gross misdemeanor charges stemming from eye clinic visits made by two young women in 2010, who said they left his office feeling violated.

Assistant Blue Earth County Attorney Michael Hanson argued to the jurors that Gavin took advantage of the women. But Gavin’s defense team argued that Gavin, who has 20 years experience and had not been accused of impropriety before, had done nothing wrong, and that the women had misunderstood his methods.
