UTICA, N.Y. -- Sentencing was postponed for the New Hartford psychiatrist found guilty of sexual abuse.

Dr. Surendra Johri was found guilty of two counts of sexual abuse and one count of forcible touching, all of which are misdemeanors.

This was related to three alleged incidents involving two separate patients back in 2017.

All three incidents allegedly occurred during Johri's psychiatric patient sessions.

Johri has been released on bail, but was forced to surrender his passport and check in with a probation officer leading up to his next court date.

He is scheduled to appear back in court in May.
