Fairfield doctor faces domestic violence chargesPosted: Updated:
A Fairfield doctor was arrested over the weekend and is facing domestic violence charges.
Ian Gorovoy turned himself in to police Saturday before bonding out. He made his first court appearance Monday.
The ophthalmologist is facing four counts of third-degree sexual assault and four counts of risk of injury to a child.
Police say the incidents happened in 2017 and 2018 while Gorovoy was involved with a woman he is no longer with.
Police say it wasn't until about a year after the couple split that the victim came forward -- in March of 2019. During that time, they were involved in legal proceedings.
Police say the woman told them on multiple occasions that Gorovoy initiated unwanted sexual contact with her and did so in front of a 4-year-old child. They say the victim has recordings of the couple arguing.
Gorovoy's attorney, Edward Gavin, denied the claims, telling police he had proof the encounters were consensual.
“This arrest arises out of a difficult divorce," Gavin said in a statement to News 12 Connecticut. "We’ve been cooperating with the Fairfield police for almost a year. The charges are baseless. We look forward to having our day in court.”
Police say Gorovoy has been ordered to have no contact with the victim.
