A fake British doctor has been jailed for eight years yesterday after dreaming up special cancer “treatments” so he could sexually abuse female patients.
Reginald Gill, 77, conned women into believing they had cancer. He then told one victim that her condition could be cured if a man sucked her breasts for 30 minutes a day.
Gill and wife Leila, 35, ran an alternative medical centre from their bungalow where they abused two women.
Judge Keith Thomas told Gill: “They said they would go through any humiliation and shame to cure themselves.
“After giving them this horrifying diagnosis you submitted them to degrading treatment.
“You also convinced your wife to go along with your depraved scheme.
“You convinced the women to strip naked in front of you and, under the pretence you were administering beneficial treatment, subjected them to sexual assault.”
Jurors heard that wheelchair-bound Gill told his victims he had been an Army doctor but he had no medical qualifications.
He was found guilty of three sexual assaults, six assaults by penetration and two counts of fraud.
His young wife was given six months after being convicted of sexual assault and fraud.
John Hopkins, defending, told Swansea crown court: “It was a quack enterprise motivated by the mistaken belief Reginald Gill had in his own capabilities.”
The Gills, of Cwmduad, Carmarthenshire, who were arrested last May, had charged their patients.
Prosecutor Huw Rees said Gill kissed a victim “in the middle of the stomach” after telling her about the perverted breast “cure”.
