Cardiologist OKs terms in sex harassment case

A Glen Burnie cardiologist has agreed to stop practicing medicine for six months, get psychiatric treatment and take a course in medical ethics, as a result of two sexual harassment complaints filed against him with the state agency that regulates physicians.

Dr. Krishan K. Singal, a cardiologist with offices in the 1300 block of Crain Highway South, agreed to the conditions as part of a May 25 order issued by the State Board of Physician Quality Assurance.


The board, which could have revoked Dr. Singal's license, also found him guilty of unprofessional conduct. The order takes effect June 15.

The agreement was reached May 9, the day an administrative law judge was to hold a hearing to decide whether Dr. Krishan molested a nurse at North Arundel Hospital in 1993 and a cardiac technician at his office in 1992.


Dr. Singal, whose staff privileges were suspended at North Arundel, was charged with fourth-degree sex offenses in both cases. The charges were dropped last fall when the physician found witnesses to contradict the prosecution's accounts.

Three charged in theft of $32,000 from car

Three men arrested for shoplifting around 3 p.m. Monday afternoon also have been charged with the felony theft of $32,000 hidden under the seat of a stolen car they were driving, police said.

An employee at the Value City in the Harundale Mall told police he saw three men put on tennis shoes, then run out the store without paying. The employee caught one man, but the other two ran to a Chevy station wagon, later identified as be longing to Ronald Warczynski of Baltimore, police said.

The men then abandoned the car and ran to a library on East Way Road, where they were arrested a short time later, police said.

The suspects, also charged with auto theft, are: Joseph Godsey, 33, of the 400 block of S. Parrish St., Baltimore; Richard Lee Acton, 19, of the 800 block of Washington Blvd., Baltimore; and Richard Francis Stichcomb, 19, of the 4200 block of Audrey Ave., Brooklyn Park.

Mr. Warczynski reported his car stolen June 3. He also told police that $32,000 he and his wife planned to use as a down payment on a new house was hidden under the seat.
