GP faces retrial for sexual assault after conviction quashed

The Queensland doctor's guilty verdict has been successfully set aside on appeal

A Queensland doctor accused of digitally raping a woman after a medical procedure has successfully appealed his conviction and been granted a retrial. 

Dr Olajide Olusesan Ogunseye denied the sexual assault at his Hervey Bay practice in 2018 but was found guilty by a jury and sentenced to 20 months' imprisonment.

The Queensland Court of Appeal on Tuesday found there had been a miscarriage of justice, setting aside the guilty verdict.

Dr Ogunseye was accused of penetrating the woman's vagina with one or more fingers
