The woman, who testified at trial, is suing the doctor for negligence. A lawsuit, filed Nov. 17, 2010, is pending in Oklahoma County District Court.

Lases agreed in September 2010 not to practice medicine after the woman complained to the Oklahoma State Board of Medical Licensure & Supervision.

Lases became a doctor in Oklahoma in 1976 after graduating from a medical school in Mexico.

The medical board suspended his license in 1986 for sexual misconduct with a 10-year-old male patient and a 17-year-old female patient. He was allowed to practice again, at first on probation, after he received psychiatric and psychological treatment and attended group therapy, records show.

His attorney could not be reached for comment Thursday.
