#ChildMolester | Gainesville doctor arrested on charges of molestation, sexual assault


Through his lawyer, Lebow has stringently denied the charges.

“Dr. Michael Lebow is completely innocent of the charges being levied against him,” Brett Willis, the doctor’s attorney, said in a statement. “Dr. Lebow took two polygraphs by the best polygraph examiners in Georgia and passed them both.

“Additionally, he voluntarily submitted to a psychosexual examination which concluded that he is: (a) not a pedophile; or (b) sexually deviant,” Willis continued. “We are disappointed that the police chose to believe the claims of an adult woman, who previously admitted only to voluntary, consensual sex with Dr. Lebow years ago. Her claims are about events that supposedly occurred 5-6 years ago.”

The investigation is ongoing and further charges could be taken out against Lebow, the sheriff’s office said.

Anyone who might have information is asked to call investigator Michael Alford with the Hall sheriff’s office at 770-533-7690.
