Michael Fine, a family law attorney in Lorain County, Ohio, has been accused of hypnotizing a female client and making her perform sexual acts while under a trance.
The Lorain County Bar Association filed a motion with the Ohio Supreme Court this week to suspend Fine from practicing law in the state because he allegedly “poses a substantial threat of serious harm to the public,” noted The Smoking Gun.
According to a report by investigator Richard Thomas of the Lorain County prosecutor's office, the woman, identified only as "Jane Doe," was "unable to recall substantial portions of the meetings [with Fine], and afterwards she would realize her clothes and bra were out of place and moved, and her vagina was wet.”
However, "Jane Doe" was told that her account was not enough to indict Fine, so she recorded her next two telephone conversations with the lawyer, who allegedly placed her in a trance "of an explicit sexual nature, wherein he induces her into multiple orgasms,” added Thomas.
After the phone calls, "Jane Doe" was wired by police before she met with Fine on Nov. 7 in his office.
Thomas stated in his report that Fine hypnotized “Jane Doe” and then began "sexual dialogue, explaining sexual acts that he will do for her."
Police entered the room and found Fine holding the woman's hand and massaging her shoulders, reports the New York Daily News.
A second woman, identified as “Jane Doe 2,” told the Lorain County Bar Association that Fine “was attempting to hypnotize her” during meetings in his office in which he would ask her about her sexual experiences with her husband, whom she was divorcing.
“Jane Doe 2” said she felt “creepy and disgusted” by Fine's alleged actions.
