Ohio doctor registered as sex offender permitted to continue practice
Editor's Note: Judging from their new concealed carry website, even the Ohio Hospital Association won't speak up about this absurdity - as long as his patients don't try and exercise their right to self-defense at his office.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - With four doctors serving 15,000 people in Monroe County, a judge said she had no other choice but to allow a doctor registered as a sex offender to continue his practice there.
Geoffrey D. Snyder, 37, had restrictions put on his family practice in the rural eastern Ohio county in the ruling Thursday by Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Jennifer Brunner.
There must be a nurse or other staff member in the room when Snyder treats women or minors. Snyder may not accept new patients and must continue psychological counseling, she said.
Snyder was labeled a sex offender last May when he pleaded no contest to importuning. He allegedly pursued a sexual rendezvous with a 14-year-old girl on the Internet. "She" turned out to be an undercover police officer.
