The Lansing State Journal reported 53-year-old Kassem Hallak was arraigned Tuesday in Eaton County District Court in Charlotte on second- and fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct charges. Authorities said the new charges involve two female patients.

Third- and fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct charges in December 2011 involved three other female patients.

Officials said the assaults happened starting in 2009.

Hallak’s lawyer, John Frawley, said following the initial charges that his client, who practiced in Charlotte, denied any wrongdoing.

State records show Hallak’s license has been suspended.
