Dr. Murali Krishna Aalabasavaraja Reddy is a resident at the University of South Alabama Children’s and Women’s Hospital. That makes it even more creepy that he was arrested for allegedly soliciting sex from a 15-year-old boy on craigslist. I say is a resident because the university has suspended him without pay pending the outcome of the trial. It doesn’t seem like he diddled any of the patients because the university stresses that the residents work in teams implying that he would have had no opportunity to do so. Let’s hope that’s true,
Police say that Reddy placed an ad on craigslist looking for young stuff and received a reply from a 15-year-old boy. Of course the boy turned out to be the police. It seems that Reddy was just another pedo who let his perverse desires overrule his common sense…
According to police, Reddy pleaded to keep the matter quiet: “I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Please don’t do this. I’m sorry for meeting him and I don’t want to lose my job.”
You should have thought of that before you decided that you wanted to diddle a teenager. He’s looking at 10 years in federal prison but even the feds look for plea deals. He probably won’t even get five.
And once again I have to point out craigslist’s need for self-monitoring. How many other victims could Reddy have possibly had. I seriously doubt that this was his first shot at the Sears Catalog for pedophiles known as craigslist. How can the community police when they’re a bunch of scum too?
UPDATE 9/18/12: Dr. Reddy has been convicted and the 10 year sentence is a mandatory minimum so he could be looking at more prison time.
UPDATE 1/23/2013: Nope, it seems that Reddy only got the minimum of 10 years. He’ll be out in plenty of time to re-offend.
