The former dentist from Australia was sentenced to eight years in prison for sexual abuse of underage boys with the help of hypnosis. On Friday, January 12, according to local television station 9News.
The inhabitants of the Armidale city claim that 82-year-old Werner Otto Schwartz (Werner Otto Schwarz) was considered a good neighbor. However, in 2017, he was charged with 17 sexual offences against four boys under the age of 16, committed in the period from 1981 to 1984. The victim never reported the harassment to the dentist until 2013.
At the hearing on 12 January it was revealed that the man was trained the technique of hypnosis to help patients relax. He tried to hypnotize and under-age victims that they have forgotten about the harassment. However, oblivion did not happen: after years they told about the incident in detail.
The judge was astonished reaction of local residents on charges: “it is unfortunate that some of our citizens are still opposed to the fact that the victims of unspeakable violence dared to complain about him.” She thinks they were silent for many years because of the high social status of Schwartz.
