Centre County dentist accused of rape appears in court
BELLEFONTE – A Centre County dentist accused of raping a patient after a surgery appeared in court Wednesday.
Dr. Wade Newman was arrested last month for allegedly giving the woman a ride to another dentist's office on the day of a root canal procedure, and raped her afterward.
Police testified about setting up recording devices at the woman's home.
Authorities said he denied having sex with her, but admitted that he tried.
Police also said DNA evidence from a rape kit links him to the crime.
Newman was released after posting $1 million bond.
