Dentist released on bail

BELLEFONTE, CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. - A Centre County Dentist accused of raping one of his own patients is out on bail.

Dr. Wade Newman from Bellefonte Family Dentistry reportedly raped one of his patients after performing a procedure on her in October 2016. The victim asked Newman to drop her off at her mother's house after surgery, but was still under the influence of anesthesia at the time.

That's when he instead took her to her home and raped her according to investigators. A rape kit exam confirmed the incident.

Newman's preliminary hearing is scheduled for next week.
